Dandelions In The Wind - KJ Group and Daniels Spectrum

585 Dundas Street EastToronto Ontario

Racism and Bullying continue to be a major concern for this generation. However, many do not understand that people faced similar situations many years ago but in a different way. The school boards are doing an exceptional job by incorporating Bulling Prevention Day/Week and encouraging dialogue amongst the youth regarding this serious issue. Dandelions in the Wind works synergistically with anti-bullying teaching, helping to change the thought process on racism in this world. Jennifer and I truly believe that this play offers an unparalleled educational and cultural experience for students. 

Dandelions in the Wind is the love story of a young white woman and a young black man caught up in the turbulent times of America’s Civil Rights era. This musical will be staged at the Daniels Spectrum in Toronto during Black History Month on February 8, 9, 15, 16 2017 beginning at 10:30am (2 hour show). The musical is geared towards Grade 7 through 12. Students are allowed to eat a bagged lunch in the theatre lobby before or after the show. 

Dandelions in the Wind presents a bit of black history in a fresh, exciting way to a cast and audience mostly born after these events occurred. It paints a picture of a young interracial couple who are in love, but it also makes broad strokes on the topic of racism which still plagues us today. Great strides have been made; especially in law-making, in the fifty years since the events depicted, but recent situations in the States and Canada remind us that racism still exists and despite the perceived tolerance and multiculturalism of Canada, there is a chasm of racism here also. 

The musical includes the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Voting Rights March in Selma, all of which bring attention to historical moments, yet the show has been crafted carefully to make the material current for today’s youth. With music that ranges from African drumming and slave chants to gospel-type songs and toe-tapping dance numbers, this production shows how far we have come, yet how far we still have to go – where hate can lead and how love can 

overcome. Although the musical centres on the racism between black and white, the production has a message for all groups of people who are separated by the yawning chasm of fear and distrust. Dandelions is a step toward bridging that divide, and achieves it in an artistic way. When the show debuted in the UK, a theatre critic called it “ a show that the world needs to see.”
