Award winning actor, Charles S. Dutton will star in the highly acclaimed one man show, “From Jail to Yale: Serving Time on Stage” on February 26, 2011 at 6:45pm at the University of Houston’s Cullen Performance Hall (4800 Calhoun Road, Houston, TX 77204). The show will be presented by the U.S. Dream Academy in partnership with the University of Houston’s Department of African American Studies.

This one-man show captures a series of events in Dutton’s journey through life, from the streets of East Baltimore to becoming an Emmy Award-winning actor, director and Broadway star. The show will travel to 10 cities across the country to benefit the U.S. Dream Academy’s afterschool learning centers. Dutton will donate all proceeds from his performances to the US Dream Academy’s critical programs. These programs were developed to empower children who are at-risk of future incarceration to maximize their potential by providing them with academics, social and values enrichment through supportive mentoring and the use of technology.

Tickets are on sale for $45 per person and are available online at USDreamAcademy.org; a limited number of tickets will also be available at the Cullen Box Office the day of the event. The VIP Reception will immediately follow the performance. Doors open at 6:00 pm.
