- SHOW WAY THE MUSICAL
SHOW WAY THE MUSICAL
Soonie’s great-grandma was just seven years old when she was sold to a big plantation without her ma and pa, with only some fabric and needles to call her own. She began to stitch a Show Way, a quilt with secret meanings to show enslaved people the way to freedom. As each generation passes, the Show Way shines a light on the past and paves a road to the future, stitching together possibility and promise.
This musical is adapted from Newberry Award-winning author and Kennedy Center Artist in Residence Jacqueline Woodson’s book of the same title. Show Way is brought to the stage in a moving, lyrical account which pays tribute to women in Woodson’s own family whose strength and knowledge illuminate their daughters’ lives over seven generations. This story of history, love, and resilience is a poignant testament to the spirit of strength threaded through history.

"It was really amazing to get to perform on the Civic Center stage, to see what the professional touring shows see when they perform."
