Violet

Show Info

Violet follows the story of a young woman who embarks on a journey across the American South in 1964 to ask a televangelist in Tulsa, OK to heal her facial scar. During her travels, Violet befriends Flick, a black sergeant coping with a racist reality, and Monty, a white paratrooper preparing to be re-stationed. With a musical score as varied as the genres you find from NC to OK, Violet examines themes of race, gender, faith, and their intersections. Violet is a fun, moving, impactful piece with show-stopping numbers in everything from folk music to gospel that is perfect for anyone looking for powerhouse theatre!​
