Using puppets and live actors, award-winning writer Rick Balian tells the story of one of America’s greatest heroines—from her youth as a slave to her service on the Underground Railroad and her lifelong efforts to help others in need. A native of Auburn, New York (where Harriet lived until her death), Balian’s research for the play included dozens of interviews with Harriet’s descendents and the curator of the Harriet Tubman home. After the play, audiences get to meet Harriet and learn two Negro spirituals that were actually used as coded messages for slaves escaping to freedom, and sing along with Harriet. By Donation!
