The Color Purple


The Color Purple

The Color Purple will be held on Friday January 14, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the W.L. Jack Howard Theatre in Monroe, LA. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to curtain.

This musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film) spotlights 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.

Under the leadership of Pashen Sims, The Arts with Passion was created to educate, entertain, and empower individuals about The Arts in various local communities. The Arts with Passion is currently working on various productions and workshops in the community.
