The work, to run Nov. 30-Dec. 18, is billed as a "musical celebration of our common humanity that explores the power and boundaries of the human voice. It blends innovative and uniquely-arranged compositions from Baroque to jazz, from secular to sacred, from Broadway to hip hop, and so much more."

Ramsey, a Broadway performer who appeared in Oh, Kay!, Five Guys Named Moe, Black and Blue and The Life, has since branched off into writing, directing and choreographing. He directed and co-choreographed the Off-Broadway R&B musical From My Hometown and wrote the plays Fire On The Bayou, Chasin' Dem Blues, Soultime: At The Apollo and Sam Cooke: Forever Mr. Soul. He's also developing Me & Nina: A Little Sugar in My Bowl, a musical about singer-songwriter Nina Simone.

The DTC season also includes the Arthur Miller drama All My Sons, directed by David Stradley, Oct. 19-Nov. 6; Donald Margulies' relationship drama about war-wounded journalists Time Stands Still, directed by Bud Martin in a co-production with Pennsylvania's Act II Playhouse, Jan. 18-Feb. 5, 2012; and Regina Taylor's Crowns, about African-American church ladies and their hats, April 11-29, 2012.

Single tickets for the DTC season go on sale Aug. 1. Delaware Theatre Company is Delaware's primary resident Equity theatre. It's located at 200 Water Street, on Wilmington's Riverfront. DTC's executive director is Mary Ann Ehlshlager.
