A trailblazing new musical for young audiences based on Chelsea Clinton’s best-selling book, She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World.
In this musical retelling, fourth-grader Naomi’s field trip to a Women’s History Museum turns into a time travel adventure where she encounters inspirational women you may know overcoming barriers and making history. A rallying cry for all of those tiny feminists, mini activists and little ones ready to take on the world, one dream at a time! Recommended for children 5+ but welcomes kids of all ages.
