VIOLET
JULY 9 - 25

Music by Jeanine Tesori
Lyrics and Book by Brian Crawley
Based on "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts

Disfigured as a young girl, Violet has finally saved enough money to travel by bus from her home in North Carolina to Oklahoma where she hopes a miracle awaits her in the form of a televangelist with healing powers. Her journey through the 1964 Deep South toward the beauty she so desires transforms her spirit and shows that love for yourself and others is more than skin deep.
