Nonprofit presents ‘The Seven’ at North Hennepin Community College Feb. 21

Brooklyn Park-based African Career, Education and Resource, Inc. or ACER, was one of several nonprofits to receive funding from the Metropolitan Council to ensure underrepresented communities along the proposed Bottineau Transitway corridor are aware of and involved in the planning process.

As part of its effort, ACER is hosting “The Seven” by Ten Thousand Things Theater. The play is a hip-hop retelling of Aeschylus’ “Seven Against Thebes,” the story of two brothers who try to rule their kingdom peacefully despite their father’s curse.

The performance will be 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the North Hennepin Community College Center for Business and Technology Grand Hall, at 7411 85th Ave. N., Brooklyn Park.

Admission is free. Guests can come an hour early to see a graduation ceremony of ACER’s small-business training class followed by a reception.

“The Seven” contains adult language and may not be appropriate for children under 14.
