York! The one man play with proceeds supporting NAYA
York in Portland: A New Perspective on Lewis & Clark and the Corps of Discovery
NAYA and the Rebuilding Center warmly welcome you to attend one of two incredible performances of the play York happening on March 12th and 13th at Jefferson High School. In a powerful, one-man performance, David Casteal plays the character York as “a whirlwind, a force of nature, a vital, laughing, raging bundle of muscle and brain” (Jim Kershner, The Spokesman-Review). Event proceeds from both performances will benefit NAYA’s Early College Academy and the ReBuilding Center’s Community Outreach Program.
York tells the untold story of the Lewis and Clark Expedition through the eyes of York, William Clark’s childhood companion and slave. With emphasis on the cultural aspect of American history through a nontraditional lens, NAYA and the Rebuilding Center are excited to share this important performance with guest from and around Portland.
Community members who attend are expected to be engulfed in a powerful, entertaining performance with gripping first-person narration along with live African drumming and Native American drum recordings. It’s the perfect opportunity for guest to learn more about a slice of Pacific Northwest history all while supporting local communities here in Portland.
Show times are at 7:00pm on Saturday, March 12 (doors at 6:30) &
2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 13 (doors at 1:30).
Advance tickets are $7.00 for students (with ID) and $12.00 for adults. Day-of tickets are $15.00 at the door.
