“Makin’ Cake” with Dasha Kelly Hamilton

All Ages

Non-MCC District Resident Cost: $25/$20 seniors and students

“Makin’ Cake” slices into American history exploring race, culture and class in a refreshing and fun way. It is storytelling in layers and filled with “Aha!” moments and poignant vignettes, digital media, and an onstage baker. This show serves up an experience and a conversation about equity in America. Part history lesson, part social science revelation, “Makin’ Cake” is a short story about America’s sweet tooth and pathway to salvation (and salivation) and leaves room for dessert and dialogue.

“Dasha’s way of telling a slice of America’s history is captivating and makes the bad ingredients a little easier to swallow because they, too, are a part of the cake.” - Audience Member
