Virginia Rep Stages Harriet Tubman Family Show at November Theatre

Virginia Repertory Theatre welcomes audiences back to the November Theatre for two weekends in October with socially distanced performances of ​Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.​ Developed at Virginia Rep, this vital story will be told ​at the historic November Theatre, 114 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA, 23220, through Sunday, October 11, 2020.

A show for families with kids ages nine and up, Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad shares in the joys, sorrows, and challenges Harriet Tubman faced while courageously freeing herself and hundreds of others from the bonds of slavery. As Harriet and her friend, Sarah Bradford, narrate her adventurous life, we get a closer look at this brave woman whose determination changed the world. The show is fifty minutes long with no intermission.
