The Color Purple, one of America’s most beloved novels written by Alice Walker, is now on the stage and drawing rave reviews from both critics and audiences at St. Paul’s Park Square Theater.
With a cast of 19, a live orchestra, and some of the Twin Cities’ finest talent, Thomasina Petrus (Sophia) and Darius Dotch (Harpo).
The show runs from January 16th through February 15th.
Join us for this celebration of life, resilience and love. All her life, “Po’ chile” Celie has known only hardship and cruelty. She is married off at the age of 14 to a callous local farmer and her sole joy in the world is the letters she receives from her missionary sister Nettie. But when sassy nightclub singer Shug Avery comes to town, Celie’s awakening – emotional and otherwise – promises to lead her to healing and joy. With a jubilant score of roof-raising gospel, jazz and throaty blues, The Color Purple is the tale of an everywoman triumphing over adversity, and a testament to the power of hope.
Why go? To join a celebration of the spirit — with the best talent in town just a few feet away.
Who Should you bring? Someone who appreciates a powerful story and uplifting music.
