Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT) is pleased to present the eleventh year of its annual Young Artist Program, through which Troupe members showcase their talents with self-produced, one-person shows. WBTT’s second Young Artist Program showcase of the 2023-2024 season will feature Troupe member Ariel Blue as she presents two performances of “On Love’s Boulevard” on April 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m. During Blue’s performances of “On Love’s Boulevard,” she will take center stage, joined by talented family members Hadara Porter and Henry Porter II, and The BlueLight Band, along with special guests. From soulful ballads to lively tunes, Blue and her ensemble will take audiences on a journey through the heart of music and love. Inspired by the warmth and love of a close-knit community, this show features a blend of soulful performances, heartfelt storytelling, and side-splitting comedy. In addition to working frequently with WBTT since her breakout role in “Ain’t Misbehavin’” in 2010, she was recently featured in "Motherless" in New York, where she was recognized with the Best Actress award at the New York Theatre Festival. WBTT’s Young Artist Program, part of its education programming, was created to support, develop and showcase the talents of young, aspiring artists of color; all proceeds from the show are given to the presenting artist to be used to further their artistic and professional development. Young Artist Program showcases take place in The Donelly Theatre at WBTT (1012 N. Orange Ave., Sarasota) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $27 general admission; sponsor tickets, which include reserved preferred seating and playbill recognition, are $100 (prices include ticket fees).
