A new musical about the
Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Montgomery bus boycott.

GLORY ROAD! was written by Granville Burgess and is produced by EdVenture Networks, Inc. DREAM involves a wacky guide, Mr. History, who time travels five ethnically-diverse 8-12-year-olds to the past to show them history is not the boring subject they might think. The Kids and Mr. History play all the parts.

DREAM is the story of the days the young Dr. King studied theology at Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, PA. Here, through reading and experience-especially the painful experience of having to renounce his love for a white woman in order to preserve his career as a teacher in the black community-King developed and refined his theory of nonviolent resistance based on the Greek idea of "agape," a love higher than one's self. Meeting Rosa Parks and leading the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955, King's believes were sorely put to the test. He had to endure threats, bombings, and jail, while convincing his followers not to answer violence with violence, but with agape. The musical excitingly dramatizes how a person can carry what he or she learns in the classroom into the "real world," where it can sometimes transform the actions and feelings of a whole nation.
