(WILLIAMSTOWN, NJ) — The Grand Theater will host its second annual celebration of the arts from June 17-18, 2022. It includes an original play, Dad may have by Ty Lewis of Pleasantville and an arts reception and awards ceremony honoring 3 black men who excel in the arts. A folk artist, a teacher/choreographer and an Arthur. The night will feature singers, dancers, musicians, actors, painters, chefs and bakers.

Friday, June 17 at 8:00 p.m. Dad may have by Ty Lewis, directed by Arthur Leo Taylor. It is the story of four brothers who come together to come to terms with the death of their father and their relationship. Truth, lies and contradictions come to a head as they travel in this modern timepiece. Along the way, the brothers poetically tackle what it means to be black men in a society where there is no safe space for anger or weakness.

Saturday June 18 – Juneteenth Honors Celebration, a semi-formal affair. Artist cocktail from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., ceremony to follow. Join them for a magical night of music, dance and art as they honor and celebrate three very talented local artists who continue to educate, inspire and uplift others in our arts community. Winners include Rashad Malik Davis, author; Arthur Leo Taylor, dance and choreography; and Quinton Green, folk artist.

The tickets are available for purchase online for individual days or as a discounted two-day package.

The Grand Theater is located at 405 S. Main Street in Williamstown, New Jersey.
