The University of Florida School of Theatre + Dance invites you to Gator Tales, an original play devised and directed by UF Professor Kevin Marshall in conjunction with the UF Samuel Proctor Oral History Program. Using the unique experiences of African-American students at the University of Florida, from the first students who attended more than 50 years ago to members of the current student body, Gator Tales dramatizes honored stories from the UF Samuel Proctor Oral History Program’s archive and the Alachua County African American History Project.

This live theatre performance brings vividly to life the voices of those who first struggled for civil rights and the generations that followed. This world premiere speaks passionately to the heart of our community. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Feb. 13-14, 17-21 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 15 and Feb. 22. Tickets are $13 for UF faculty and staff.
