Dreams are never as simple as black and white.  That's the message imparted by Lorraine Hansberry's 1959 stage drama "A Raisin in the Sun," which opens tonight at Springfield Contemporary Theatre's Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza.

t's a special weekend May 13 through 15 at Springfield Contemporary Theatre Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza (corner of Pershing and Robberson downtown). Following her sold out Sunday Songbook engagement last September 13--her birthday by the way--Johnnie Angelia King (who has starred in Ain’t Misbehavin and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill at SCT) returns in an encore weekend of performances. A great selection of blues, Broadway and gospel in the most intimate concert venue in the area.  Three performances: Friday and Saturday May 13 and 14 at 7:30pm and Sunday the 15th at 7pm.
