The “MARVTASTIC” National Black Theatre Festival

Nowhere else but Winston-Salem can you revel for six days in more than 100 performances by some of the fi nest black theater companies in America. The nearly 65,000 who attend this biennial event would agree that it is, indeed, “Marvtastic,” the phrase coined by the late founder, Larry Leon Hamlin. Since 1989, the National Black Theatre Festival has brought together national and international supporters and fans, theatre professionals, and scholars and was named “A 2011 Top 20 Event” by the Southeast Tourism Society.
