"Remember the Dream" Play Premieres at Ellis

March 1st, 2005

RE-LIVE THE IMMIGRANT JOURNEY WITH “…REMEMBER THE DREAM”

 

A new live theatrical production, “…Remember the Dream®,” that dramatizes the challenges of immigration both past and present, will be presented for a limited eight-month run at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum beginning in March. Presented in the intimate Ellis Island Living Theater, the play features professional actors,* who play a variety of roles that bring to life the experiences shared by immigrants today and the millions who made their way to America through Ellis Island, the largest human migration in modern history.

Produced and funded by The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc., “…Remember the Dream” is based upon actual immigration information obtained from various ship passenger manifests, located in the American Family Immigration History Center® (www.ellisisland.org), as well as the oral histories of Ellis Island immigrants, now stored for posterity in the museum’s Oral History Archives.

“…Remember the Dream” will be presented seven times daily Monday through Sunday. Show times are 10:45; 11:30; 12:15; 1:00; 2:30; 3:15; and 4:00. The play will run from March 20 through October 29. Admission is $5.00. For more information or to make group reservations, contact: The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc., 212-561-4500, ext. 0 or email Theater@ellisisland.org.

The Main Registry Building at Ellis Island underwent extensive restoration in the 1980s and reopened in 1990 as the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, whose exhibits tell the inspiring story of American immigration from its earliest beginnings right up to the present day. It also houses the American Family Immigration History Center® that contains the ship passenger records of the more than 25 million people who entered through the Port of New York and Ellis Island from 1892-1924. And the popular American Immigrant Wall of Honor®, the world’s largest wall of names, offers all Americans the chance to pay tribute to their immigrant ancestors, regardless of when or through which port they immigrated.
