American Sign Language-Interpreted Performance: Saturday, April 13th at 2pm

The Color Purple is a stirring and soulful musical that tells the story of Celie, a young woman who endures years of abuse and hardship at the hands of the men in her life. Along the way, Celie forms close bonds with other women, including the vibrant and independent Shug Avery and the strong and fierce Sofia. Through the power of sisterhood and self-discovery, Celie finds her voice and breaks free from the chains of oppression. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and the hit 1985 movie, The Color Purple has an unforgettable score mixed with gospel, blues, and jazz. The Color Purple is a moving and inspiring story of hope and a celebration of life and the human spirit.
