The Color Purple

August 17 @ 6:15 am

Riverside Center For The Performing Arts is is proud to present “The Color Purple.” An uplifting journey of redemption, grace and beauty.
Featuring a joyous score spiced with jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music, and blues elements, The Color Purple is an epic family saga tempered by the healing and enduring power of love. Winner of several Tony, Drama Desk, and Theatre World Awards, this musical adaption of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel tells Celie’s story, that of a downtrodden African-American woman living in 1930’s Georgia. Celie is cruelly treated by the world, a shy and frightened woman whose lot in life largely consists of eluding the brutal, treacherous men around her. The one joy lightening her misery is her sister Nettie, but she and Celie are tragically separated with the little hope of seeing each other again. Celie’s growth and maturity reveals an inner strength to prevail and triumph over adversity.

Show runs from March 13 through May 5, 2019.
