The Mad River Theater Works, or MRTW, cast and crew of the upcoming play “Keep Marching: The Road to the March on Washington” spent six days earlier this month at the Foundry Theater at Antioch College developing the one-hour musical show for all ages set to debut Jan. 13, 2024.

“Keep Marching” — written and directed by Daniel Carlton, a frequent MRTW collaborator who also helmed this year’s “Freedom Flight” — will focus on the historic 1963 March on Washington, as seen through the eyes of two journalists and the young people they interview. It features several original songs, as well as well-known pop, folk and protest music of the era.

The play follows MRTW’s inaugural summer theater residence for youth, which was held in July, and which also held the theme of “Keep Marching.”
