Come join us as BRG Mainstage Reprises and brings to life this mega-stage production of a timeless classic; Langston Hughes' “Little Ham”. A romantic urban comedy set in 1920s Harlem; based on the original 1935 stage play.

We find a resilient community optimistic about money to be made and thriving on the hustle for money.  An occasional 'hit' is the only economic opportunity for the Harlem residents who parade through Paradise Shining Parlor and Tiny's Beauty Shop.

Everyone is set and ready to go to the Hello Social Club Charleston contest at the Savoy Ballroom.

Celebrating the Black Repertory Groups' 52nd Mainstage Season. An overwhelming jovial spirit and energy take over as the BRG cast dances hope to life.
