Rainbow Beach hero 2

Rainbow Beach

This original piece will premier in Summer 2022

Rainbow Beach is a full-length musical production inspired by true events in 1961 that led to the desegregation of beaches on the south side of Chicago.

The piece of living history recounts the wade-ins, a form of nonviolent protest in which demonstrators demanded equal access by stepping into whites-only waters, and speaks truthfully to the violence that ensued.

Production is anticipated in Summer 2022.
