Sistas: The Musical

Back by popular demand May 3 - 19

We're proud to present the return of Sistas: The Musical, by Dorothy Marcic. Five women  three sisters, a great-granddaughter, and a sister-in-law sort through the attic of their recently departed family matriarch, in search of inspiration for her memorial service. They unearth trials and tears, love and laughter, and perform the music of iconic artists from Bessie Smith to Beyoncé. Sistas traces the relationship of Black women and popular music, with songs including "Oh, Happy Day," "God Bless The Child," "Stormy Weather," "R.E.S.P.E.C.T.," "I Will Survive," "Single Ladies," "I Am Not My Hair," "A Woman's Worth," and many more. The cast includes Shonka Dukureh as Roberta; LaToya Gardner as Simone; Lisa Graham as Gloria; Brittany Nelson as Heather; and Aija Penix as Tamika.
