Purlie

Invite

September 17 – October 30, 2005 In the Albert
Approximate running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes

Purlie Victorious has pursued many careers in his short life, and now he feels he’s received the call to be a preacher. All he needs is a church and his destiny will be fulfilled. But to achieve that dream, he has to con Ol’ Cap’n Cotchipee, a Georgia plantation owner out of a good bit of cash. As Purlie’s devious plan unfurls, this delightful, irreverent musical shakes the rafters with laughter, love, and downright fun.

Co-production with Pasadena Playhouse
