North: A New Musical

January 9 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In her debut theatrical production, Ashli St. Armant presents “North,” a new musical for intergenerational audiences. Set in the 1850s, “North” is based on accounts of slave escapes through the Underground Railroad, as well as St. Armant’s family history of overcoming slavery in Louisiana. While acknowledging the realities of slavery, the book and original musical compositions by St. Armant bring out the full experience of freedom-seekers: optimism, bravery, playfulness, wonder, suspense, and mystery. The musical is launching with three free previews at the West Las Vegas Library before embarking on a national tour.
