Adapted from the Graphic Novel “Hood Habits” by Curtis Bell
Light House Arts Centre and Charles Taylor Theatre & Media Arts Association are co-producing the premiere of Hood Habits: THE MUSICAL, directed by Tara L. Taylor.
“Hood Habits: the Musical ” is based on the graphic novel by Curtis Bell. HoodHabits is the graphic true story of inner city realities and proof that if given a chance; given opportunities and unconditional love, the human spirit will soar like an eagle.
Set in Modern day, in the inner city of Valley View Villa, we meet Flex. A drug dealin’, 14 yr. old wanna be tap dancing, rap star, something he hides from his crew, the KBBWs. Flex has witnessed one too many drive-by shootings and hits on his crew and community members; he worries he will remain signed up in the “Stay in The Hood for Life Program”.
It’s a story of survival, it’s a story of reclaiming one’s childhood, revaluing one’s inner being and restoring their pride.
