Harriet Tubman: Straight Up Outta’ the Underground

 

January 4 – June 25, 2021
Best for Grades 3 – 8

Bring the past to the present and change the future with this one-woman interactive storytelling experience. Uncover the truth about America’s 200-year-old struggle with slavery when you play a part in this historic retelling. On this journey, you’ll follow Harriet Tubman, the most recognized conductor of the Underground Railroad. Nicknamed “Moses,” Harriet Tubman lived up to her name by gaining her own freedom, as well as traveling back and forth from North to South over 19 times and freeing over 300 slaves!

PRE-RECORDED PERFORMANCE on Broadway On Demand with Optional PICK A PATH* Interactive Digital Production

*Pick a Path:  Classes (or students at home) can “choose their own adventure” by making different choices along the way. Viewers direct the action of the play — including different twists and turns — which provides greater viewing interest and interactive engagement.  (All leading to the same outcome, of course!) You will receive a password-protected link on or before the start date that will expire at the end of your scheduled time period.

Optional live, virtual post show Q&A with a company actor or teaching artist also available.
