This production contains mature themes and brief depictions of racism in 1960s America.


Please Note: This performance was rehearsed and filmed under strict Covid Guidlines, including cast household bubbling.


VIOLET tells the story of a young womans quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s, set in an American South reeling from the Civil Rights Movement.


Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet Karl dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.


With a score that travels from American-roots to folk to rock n’ roll to gospel, VIOLET is a thought-provoking musical that challenges you to look beneath the surface.
