"Crowns brings the musical experience back to the Playhouse stage in a big way. A female driven cast tells the story of Yolanda, a young woman transplanted from Brooklyn to South Carolina following a family tragedy. There she meets a circle of women who share with her the history, the importance, the power of the hat.Crowns is a not-to-be-missed celebration of song, dance, cultural history—and glamorous headwear."

*Thank you to Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) for a project grant which has provided funding for a six-month training for Interpreters of Color in performance interpreting. "As on the Stage" started in October 2018; interpreting "Crowns" is the final project undertaken by three of the participants, with the phenomenal Pam Cancel as their production mentor and adviser. The grant also provided four free tickets to this production for Deaf Community members, as well as an earlier production with workshop participants as interns.*
