TROIKA To Perform “The Color Purple” Musical

August 24, 2016

TROIKA Bermuda will be performing their “Work In Progress #6” musical production of “The Color Purple” tonight [Aug 24] at 7.30pm at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts.

The production will run from August 24 to August 27, with performances at 7.30pm nightly.

A spokesperson said, “‘The Color Purple’ is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman who, through love, finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world.

“This musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel [and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film] introduces the audience to Celie, a downtrodden young woman whose personal awakening over the course of 40 years forms the arc of this epic story.”

“With a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues, The Color Purple is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.

“The show features an all star Bermudian cast including Candace Furbert, who will star in the lead role of Celie. Candace’s theatre credits include: Dragon and Fairy Godmother in Shrek [UK Tour], The Book of Mormon [Original London Cast at the Prince of Wales Theatre].

“The creative team for this production features direction by Michael McFadden who was responsible for producing the US National Tour of The Colour Purple.

“The production will run from August 24th – 27th, 2016 at The Ruth Seaton James Center for the Performing Arts. Performances will be 7:30pm nightly.

“TROKA encourages the public to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment as they anticipate that this year’s show, like the others, will sell out.”
