Audiences vote for their favorite during the weekend, setting the winner on a path to a workshop in 2019 and full production in 2020. The backdrop of today’s hate-filled rhetoric and Birmingham’s fractured past, RMTC is working to spark world-changing conversations – one individual at a time. For through great art, we explore issues and emotions too difficult for mere words. And, this exploration opens us to consider the life of another – our fellow man.

You do not have to go on the tours in a specific order! Take the second one first if you want! It is a completely different set of tales of dark history! These evening, lantern lit tours cover all of the dark and interesting history that began right with the founding of our “city in the midst of the wilderness” and continue right through the Civil Rights Era of the 1960’s (although most of the tales pre-date The Great War). Come. Grab a bit of shadowy darkness…and walk with us.
