Celebrate the Christmas holiday with Freetown Village

Join the excitement of the play "Freetown Village Celebrates Christmas" Dec. 9 with matinee and evening performances at the Campus Center Theater. Freetown Village is a living-history museum created to educate people about African-American life in Indiana.

The performances will inspire guests as they explore the significance of family and cultural traditions during the holiday season, set in an African-American community in the 1870s. The play celebrates the richness of community, the spirit of giving and the preservation of family traditions.

The play will ask audience members not only to witness a story depicting a modern way of celebrating Christmas proposed by a character named Sarah Elizabeth, but to play an active role in deciding how to support her plan, which threatens to divide the town.

The matinee will begin at 10 a.m., while the evening performance begins at 7 p.m. Tickets for the matinee will be $7 per person. Student groups of 10 or more can make reservations.

Tickets for the later performance will be $12 in advance and $15 at the door. The evening performance also includes a cakewalk for $10 per person. Tickets are available at the Freetown Village website or by calling the village directly at 317-631-1870.
