UCAT Summer Series: Reflections
About the Event
Welcome to this year’s 3rd Annual UCAT Summer Series: Reflections. Enjoy a double header across three fun filled days featuring some of Arizona’s finest talent! UCAT en Minor celebrates the valley’s most talented BIPOC youth in concert, and Single Black Female (originally produced by Friends of UCAT, Flagstaff Shakespeare Co.), is back by popular demand! You don’t want to miss it.
Single Black Female is a hilarious two-woman show packed with comedic vignettes that explore the lives of thirty-something African American middle-class women. Come along on the journey as the women dialogue about their fears of rejection, hopes for romance, and reminisce about black girlhood wounds.
This show reflects on past relationships whilst the two women confess to their own mounting anxieties about commitment and the possibility of motherhood. Ultimately, the pair realizes that their best chance at love may be found closer than they ever imagined.
Single Black Female by Lisa B. Thompson, originally produced by Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival.
Single Black Female is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
About United Colours of Arizona Theatre
Founded in 2016, United Colours of Arizona Theatre began with a Facebook group attempting to create space for BIPOC individuals to convene, network, learn, and thrive within the local fine arts community. The members of United Colours of Arizona Theatre unequivocally support all social justice initiatives, and as ARTivists, their mission is to encourage a more equitable landscape within the local theatre community by creating opportunities for workshops, dance classes, audition prep, and more.
With the communities it serves, United Colours of Arizona Theatre has come to realize there is a lack of access to formal dance training, classical theatre training, and vocal lessons. The organization’s initiative fills in that gap by providing workshops to help BIPOC creatives feel prepared in and out of the audition room. The goal is to create a theatre that truly reflects the community.
