Asante, who works with Arts for Learning Indiana, often tells stories in classrooms. But she loves working with a family, multigenerational audience.
“(The Paramount) is lovely, so it helps to be in a beautiful place with history like that,” she said. “I love a family audience and I’m just hoping more people show up because the weather was crazy (in January).”
Asante said “This Little Light of Mine” has potential to really resonate with her younger viewers as a source of inspiration.
“It empowers children,” she said. “It lets them know they have a say in our history.”
Tickets for “This Little Light of Mine” cost $7 for adults and $3 for children and students. Tickets can be purchased at the Paramount Box Office 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday. They can also be purchased online at andersonparamount.org.
