Find your voice through music.

Join a journey inspired by the real life and music of singer and songwriter Tuelo Minah. Aene is a young girl living in South Africa who sets out to the United States to chase her dreams. Yet as Aene encounters a country that is hostile toward immigrants, she finds her dreams might come at a greater cost. Director and playwright Zoey Martinson captures Tuelo’s journey from girl to woman, from apartheid South Africa to America, with new music by Tuelo Minah herself and arranged with Mandisi Dyantyis. Told through immersive projections and staging, this poetic musical reminds us we have the power to define our own destiny.

Most enjoyed by age 9 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
