CFCArts Children & Youth Arts Programs presents

A Celebration of Idris Goodwin

Join the CFCArts Children & Youth Arts Programs for a one-act play by contemporary American playwright and breakbeat poet Idris Goodwin. How We Got On incorporates elements of hip-hop, rap, and spoken word and is centered on important contemporary issues from racial and gender identity to friendship and family.

How We Got On: Hank, Julian, and Luann are three talented, determined suburban teens coming of age in the 1980s. Dreaming of fame and fortune in the new Hip-Hop music scene, they must overcome cultural isolation, familial dysfunction, and ruthless rivalries to make the music that defines their lives. A sultry DJ spins their stories with her own meta-theatrical perspective in this contemporary ode to the roots of rap.

Content Warning: This production should be considered PG-13 due to frank talk of death and minor language.

Effective Sunday, March 13: Masks will be optional for all members and patrons at CFCArts rehearsals and events. In the case where a partner venue has a more stringent policy regarding masks, CFCArts will defer to the policy of the partner venue and will clearly communicate this to impacted members and patrons. We will continue to monitor local transmission levels and seek the input and advice of local, state, and national agencies and will adjust the policy, potentially reinstating a mask requirement, if it becomes apparent that it is necessary for the safety of our members and patrons.
