Walk On: The Rosa Parks Story, present by Mad River Theater Works, weaves together music and drama to tell the story of Rosa Parks, from her childhood in rural Alabama to her famous decision to "sit down and be counted."  The play dispels myths about Parks and her protest as it paints a portrait of a complex woman who had to find reconciliation within herself in order to become an effective Civil Rights leader.  The Rosa Parks Story shows how the determination of one individual made all the difference in the struggle for freedom and equality in the United States.

This play, a presentation of the Paramount Theater's Arts Education Program, will be presented to school children in grades 3-8 and is sold out.
