19: The Musical
  • Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater

Join us for an advance performance of 19: The Musical, the dynamic story of Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Inez Milholland and the suffragists who fought to get women the right to vote – the 19th Amendment. The inspirational story of these fearless women is brought to life through jazz, traditional musical standards style, spoken word, hints of gospel and dance. Following the performance will be a discussion with the cast.
