'Children's Play - Marinship - The lost stories of Marinship'

  • Manzanita Recreation Center 630 Drake Avenue Sausalito, CA, 94965 United States (map)

Celebrate Veteran' Day with the residents of Marin City as they close out the Marinship75 Celebrations

The speakers are Marin City children depicting the creation of Marinship and the subsequent construction of Marin City to house the workers, many of them black and from the South.

This is a dramatic documentary with humor, dance and music that celebrates the people, most of them poor, who left their homes to help their country and became the founders of Marin City. The play reaches back more than 60 years through the memories of those who were there to bring to life a different time, when the nation was hurriedly trying to assemble the wherewithal to fight a war in Europe and the Pacific.

Re-produced under the joint cooperation of Performing Stars and the Marin Theater Company.
