On Saturday, June 7th, Roots Revival
will be presented at the 
Lensic Theater in Santa Fe
for one performance only.

Roots Revival is a multimedia original cabaret production chronicling the history of African Americans from West Africa to the present in song, spoken word and dance. This play with music is an important addition to the country’s catalog of theatrical work dedicated to the preservation of African American culture and literature. The running time for the two act play is 98 minutes with a recommended 20 minute 
intermission. Roots Revival was written by the founder of Rainbow Studio Theater, Cathryn McGill. Rainbow Studio Theater is New Mexico’s only professional African American theater ensemble.




Roots Revival
, a 35+ member multigenerational African 
American cast, debuted in February 2012 to sold out audiences at the VSA N4th Arts Center. In February 2013, the production opened at UNM’s Popejoy Hall and attracted 3,524 patrons for two performances – an Albuquerque Public Schools full length day time performance on February 7th and a performance for the general public on February 8th2013.
This was the first time that a local African American company had ever produced a show at Popejoy since its inception in 1963. The performances were a part of Arts and 
Culture Weekend of the 2nd Annual New Mexico Black History Month Festival, February 5 – 9, 2013.
