Marshall Opie, Artistic Director and Founder of ROLL ON! Productions, LLC (ROLL ON!), obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics with a minor in civil engineering from Howard University. At Howard, Opie developed an interest in reading biblical and African- American history. His newly found interest birthed a passion for writing and in particular, writing plays.
Opie was inspired to write A Joyful Noise! after hearing a group of elementary students read poems by Langston Hughes that he recalled his mother reciting to him as a child. A Joyful Noise! is a collage of poetry, history, dance and original music compiled to encourage and inspire audiences of all ages to live their dreams.
Opie, a 2002 recipient of National Theatre’s New Playwright Grant Award, and has completed his MFA at Hollins
