PERPICH ARTS HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL THEATER ENSEMBLE PRESENTS “QUILTERS”
April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Perpich Arts High School Musical Theater Ensemble is happy to present “Quilters”.
Perpich Arts High School Musical Theater Program presents “Quilters”. The story of a pioneer woman, Sarah, and her seven daughters as they face life in the American frontier. Rather than a straightforward storyline, the musical is presented as a series of beautiful tales and tableaux matched with musical numbers, each presenting an aspect of frontier life or womanhood. The patches or blocks show “girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness, and death.” These patches are ultimately put together to form one dramatic musical tableau.
Recommended for ages 12 and older.

These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it, and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.
