Encore Michigan

“She Persisted, The Musical” from Farmers Alley starting 6/12

Show Announcement June 02, 2021

KALAMAZOO, MICH.–Farmers Alley Theatre is once again bringing live theatre to the people free of charge with their Theatre for Young Audiences production of “SHE PERSISTED, THE MUSICAL.”

Performing outdoors at bothKalamazoo’s Bronson Park and Portage’s Celery Flats Amphitheatre, this trailblazing new musical, based on the best-selling Children’s book by Chelsea Clinton is the perfect recipe for free family fun this June 12th, 19th and 26th at 11am & 3pm. This West Michigan Premiere of “SHE PERSISTED” contains an
energetic musical score, fun choreography and a message that we all need to hear about following your
dreams.

Fourth-grader Naomi’s field trip to a Women’s History Museum turns into a time travel adventure
where she encounters inspirational women who have overcome barriers and made waves throughout
U.S. history. From activists to athletes, artists and more, the musical features the stories of female
trailblazers such as Harriet Tubman, Virginia Apgar, Ruby Bridges, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner,
and Sonia Sotomayor.

‘SHE PERSISTED, THE MUSICAL” will be directed by Marissa Harrington with music direction by Monica
Washington, the same team that brought last summer’s Bob Marley musical THREE LITTLE BIRDS to
vibrant life. The company features a multi-cultural cast of local talent and WMU students that includes
Khadijah Brown, Chloe Davis, Kiara Durbin, Karly Paige Im, EJ Taylor and Alyssa Zamora.

Farmers Alley Theatre is committed to adults performing meaningful works for young audiences and
removing the barrier of ticket price by making this event FREE TO THE PUBLIC. Performances are at
Bronson Park on Saturday, June 12th & 19th at 11am & 3pm, and the Celery Flats Amphitheatre on
Saturday June 26th also at 11am & 3pm
