A One-Of-A-Kind Performance Experience:

This program educates and entertains while recognizing the struggle and sacrifices of the Women's Suffrage Movement's most important figures, taking the audience on a journey back in time into the lives of these brave American patriots.


Historical songs, image projections, authentic costuming, an engaging spoken narrative, and audience participation make this a performance experience unlike any other. ​This is not a typical recital!

Program Highlights:


  • The role of ladies' fashions within the Movement and the strategies--and scandals--that ensued!


  • Songs that furthered the Women's Suffrage cause--whether or not this was their composers' original intention!


  • Frederick Douglass's vital role and contribution to Women's Suffrage at the official beginning of the Movement.


And much more!

The program is available in a range of durations to fit individual needs.

Please use the booking form on this website for additional information, booking inquiries, and requests.
