“THE SUFFRAGETTE MUSICAL: FROM BATTLES TO BALLOTS”
A CENTURY OF STRUGGLE FOR THE RIGHT TO VOTE
This performance is a co-production between Grand Vision Foundation and the Pennyroyal Players.
The Pennyroyal Players pay musical tribute to the 27 “Radical Women” of color and other famous American heroines who dared to fight for their rights – for freedom and to vote. The story begins in 1591 in England and ends in Tennessee in 1920 with the final ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, providing all women the right to vote. In this fast-paced musical portrayal of the battles which were fought for freedom and equality, you will learn of the struggles, tragedies, and victories these heroic women faced every step of the way. Told with humor, historically accurate songs and based on familiar melodies, this show will entertain and amuse you.
This production was created by Anne Destabelle. Suitable for all ages.
The show is 1 hour with no intermission.
