spring 2023 production


based upon the quilters: Women and domestic art


Book by Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek. Music and Lyrics by Barbara Damashek. 

Through music, story and dance, the challenges and joys women faced on the North American frontier are staged with warmth, humor and dignity. Told by a pioneer woman and her daughters, each story is represented by a quilt block. Stitched together, their stories create a colorful mosaic of birth, adolescence, family life, death, natural disasters and everyday celebrations for these women on the prairie.

Quilters is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC
