CROWNS is a gospel musical by Regina Taylor, adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry.  When Brooklyn-born Yolanda goes down South after the death of her brother, she finds strength in the tales of the wise women who surround her—and the powerful rituals connected to their dazzling hats. This jubilant musical fuses Gospel music and rich storytelling with abundant “hattitude” in this rousing coming-of-age tale!

Tickets are $20.00 for adults, $18.00 for students (plus tax).  There will be a $2.00 surcharge for all tickets purchased at the door.

CROWNS is directed by McCellus Mays.  The band is sponsored by ALIGN WEALTH MANAGEMENT, a practice of AMERIPRISE FINANCIAL.

The true story of Helen Keller, this inspiring drama is an American classic.  Blind, deaf and mute, young Helen is in danger of being institutionalized in 1880s Alabama.  Her desperate parents seek help in the form of Miss Annie Sullivan, a "half blind yankee schoolgirl" who serves as Helen's tutor.  The journey of both student and teacher is remarkable, as they introduce Helen to the world around her.  

Directed by Teresa Wills
