Jubilee Theatre is ecstatic to present the North Texas premiere of Dorothy Marcic’s, Sistas The Musical, on stage July 26 – August 25, 2019.
After a matriarch’s death, the women in the family clean Grandma’s attic and find love and old memories packed away, and in the process, hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930s through the Girl Groups of the 60s to the empowerment of the 90s. Songs include “Oh, Happy Day,” “Mama Said,” “I Will Survive,” “Tyrone,” “I am Not My Hair” and “A Woman’s Worth.”
Sistas The Musical is directed by Jubilee’s newest artistic director, D. Wambui Richardson who shares patrons “will be able to enjoy 7 decades of music – as Sistas is one of the longest running musicals!” The musical stars five actors, Octavia Thomas (Dr. Simone), Kimberly Oliver (Roberta), Kaylee Killingsworth (Heather), L’Paige Bedford (Gloria) and Sydney Hewitt (Tameka).
The remaining production team includes musical direction by Clark Joseph, choreography by JuNene K, set design by George Miller, costume design by Andre Terry, scenic design by Jennye James, sound design by Adam Bailey, technical direction by Allen Dean, stage management by Cherie Williams and assistant stage management by Aaron Butler.
