    Beatbox: a raparetta PG-13 Drama-Regional Premiere By Dan Wolf and Tommy Shepherd Directed by Rachel Hemphill Dickson Previews: May 9, 10, 13 OPENING NIGHT: May 9, 2020 Runs: May 9 - June 7, 2020 BEATBOX: A Raparetta is a modern dramatic musical production written and performed in rhythm and rhyme with vocal drumbeats (beatboxing), hip hop dance and a live DJ! The play is soaked in the beat and the heat of hip-hop culture. It provokes a sense of desperation held at bay. The powerful rap rhymes built from equal parts of anger and hope; and the constant threat of violence. The focus is on the lives of two stepbrothers, and the circumstances that begin to pull them apart, as they navigate through loss, jealousy, poverty, and dreams.
