Sit-In, the Alliance Theatre’s first-ever animated short, celebrates the power of young people to change history. The script comes from Pearl Cleage, the theater’s distinguished artist in residence, and features a mix of civil rights anthems and brand-new freedom songs (composed by Eugene H. Russell IV). It follows three friends as they learn about civil rights-era sit-ins and apply those lessons to today. The short runs 33 minutes. Streamable through February 28. $10 HERE.
