Thomas, the son of a pastor, leaves home to attend college and pledges a fraternity against his fatherâ€™s advice. Celebrating the richness of African-American college life and the traditions of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Darryl Reuben Hallâ€™s FRAT HOUSE brings college life to the stage in this family oriented raucous comedy that explores the bond between brothers – their joys, triumphs, pain, and sorrow!
CRITICS LOVE FRAT HOUSE: “Impressively choreographed, energetic, and lots of fun. And the concluding gospel finale that followed brought down the house,” says Entertaining U/ Alun Montgomery
