Nick & Edna Stewart are shown above with their friend Alan Young (who is the voice of Scrooge McDuck in Disney's Duck Tales") nearly 50 years ago at that first theatre. Nick Stewart created the voice of Disney's Brer Bear in Disney's "Song of the South" & the "Splash Mountain" ride at Disney theme parks. He also played the part of Lightnin' on the Amos 'n' Andy TV show. Nick's the guy in the truck in that funny opening scene of Mad Mad Mad World, and the guy who gave Gene Wilder the shoe polish in Silver Streak. In 1995, he was inducted into the Academy of Television Arts & Science's ARCHIVE OF AMERICAN TELEVISION for his Pioneering work in Television. Nick was born on March 15, 1910. He died December 18, 2000, fighting against redevelopment corruption.
Autographed photos of Alan Young and a limited number of personal copies of "Song of the South" are available for donors.

The Ebony Showcase Services continue to be offered on the World Wide Web and in our studio to people from all walks of life. Many years ago, Nick Stewart prophetically wrote "A Theatre needs to be more than just a building... A Culture must be more than a collection of Art and Music..."
