PROTEST: A REVOLUTIONARY ROCK MUSICAL

PROTEST represents Women Activists that have made an impact on their communities, politics, and the world.  

 

Musically, PROTEST transcends the decades, with a rock-musical vibe.  It is a variety of monologues (speeches), solos, duets, trio’s, quartets plus all-cast production numbers as the women protesters ride the resurrected Freedom Bus to different time periods.  PROTEST celebrates women of all races and of all generations.  The women represented in PROTEST are just a handful that fought for all our rights.   The famous speeches & poems become songs as well as dialogue scenes between the characters. 

 

PROTEST highlights, Greta Thunberg  (Climate activist), Emma Gonzalez (Parkland Activist), Amanda Gorman (Poet), Maya Angelou (Poet), Alice Paul (Suffragette), Malala Yousafzai (Female Education Activist), Kimberly Jones (George Floyd Activist & Author),  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Green New Deal, Politician), Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors & Opal Tometi (Black Lives Matter Co-Founders), Elaine Brown & Angela Davis (Black Panthers), Diane Nash (Civil Rights Activist), Whoopi Goldberg, America Ferrara, Gloria Steinem (Million Woman March), Jayna Zweiman & Krista Suh (Pussy hat Project), Michelle Cook, Morning Star Gali, Jaslyn Charger, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard (Standing Rock), Eartha Kitt (Vietnam activist), and Jane Fonda (Vietnam activist to now.) 

This project will give employment to artists, writers, composers, and lyricists in this time of COVID-19.  Besides poetry, songs, speeches, spoken word, and dance, integrated media, photos, and film images from the protests will be utilized.
