She A Gem

This Week
Now - February 24, 2019
Starting: 07:00 PM

World premiere Kennedy Center commission

In this original play by Josh Wilder, Krystin, Jaleesa, and Amber form a double-dutch team in inner city Philadelphia to compete in their neighborhood pageant. If they win, they’ll receive a special prize: their futures told by Ms. Mary, the local psychic. Will they become a famous singer? A hair dresser? Or maybe a “gem,” a special leader who cares for the neighborhood?

Then they meet a pregnant teen from North Philly who can jump double-dutch almost better than any of them. Just as the girls anticipate learning about their futures, they’ll learn something important about her past that affects them all.

Most enjoyed by age 12 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
