Past Events

Alamance GAP Fundraising Activities

GAP has sponsored a myriad of fun- raising activities through the years for the Alamance/ Burlington Community. The primary focus is on the arts: writers/artists in residence, theater, choral and dance ensembles have been the activities sponsored. The Chuck Davis African American Dance Ensemble came in 2014, but the biggest fundraisers have been the plays.


The first drama sponsored was Color Purple , a Tony award winning musical performed by the award-winning NCCU Department of Theater. Maya Angelou’s God Spoke My Name was the second play that NCCU Department of Theater performed for the Alamance/Burlington Community. In December, 2017, GAP sponsored the Rev L.A. Bryant’s New York hit Gospel Play, A Sign of Judgment.

Sister Act , Oct 19, 2018

Sister Act, the all-time favorite comedy that packed houses in the 90s, was performed at North Carolina Central University in Fall 2018 and Cummings High School on Friday, October 19, 2018.


Dr. Asabi (Stephanie Howard) is the director of the play and is also director and associate professor at NCCU. She has received the College of Liberal Arts Awards in Outstanding Teaching, Scholarship and Playwriting. She is a graduate of NC A&T State University and Wake Forest University and earned her doctorate in Communication and Theatre at Regent University in Virginia.


The NCCU Department of Theatre is a National Award Winning Program. It has been unique over the years because of the program's capacity to transform a creative notion about the theatre into practical knowledge and skills. One of the best performances of all times has been its production of SARAFINA. The theatre faculty has won recognition through national competitions, varied publications, and professional theatre work and community service.

 Alamance GAP Grants

GAP has been fortunate to receive partial funding for its projects and programs through the N. C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
