The Day the Waters Came

Please join us for “The Day the Waters Came,” which will be performed at the museum on Wednesday, February 7th at 6 PM. This small-cast drama is about how a New Orleans’s 9th Ward teenager’s life is impacted by Hurricane Katrina.Maya Marsalis takes you by the hand, sometimes the throat, and leads you through her landscape the day Hurricane Katrina came, the levees broke, the world watched and the US government did nothing. Go with her as she shows you how her world and that of thousands of New Orleans citizens changed forever, the day the waters came.

Tickets are only $10 with funds supporting the Milwaukee Youth Theatre. Seats are limited.

Comments Are Welcome

Note: We moderate submissions in order to create a space for meaningful dialogue, a space where museum visitors – adults and youth –– can exchange informed, thoughtful, and relevant comments that add value to our exhibits.

Racial slurs, personal attacks, obscenity, profanity, and SHOUTING do not meet the above standard. Such comments are posted in the exhibit Hateful Speech. Commercial promotions, impersonations, and incoherent comments likewise fail to meet our goals, so will not be posted. Submissions longer than 120 words will be shortened.
