Music and Lyrics by Barbara Damashek

Based on “The Quilters: Woman and Domestic Art” by Patricia Cooper and Norma Bradley Allen

Directed by Dr. Dale Savidge

November 13-15 and 20 - 22, 2014 | 7:30pm | Billingsley Theatre

This joyous and moving musical celebration of American Womanhood became a record-setting regional theater success before its presentations on the Broadway and at the Edinburgh Festival.  Combining music, dance movement and scenes of vivid dramatic intensity, the play pays eloquent tribute to the courage and spirit of our nation’s pioneer woman.

“Who would have thought that quilts, quilting—quilters—had so much joy and pain, laughter and tears, so much life, beauty and drama in them?”—Drama-Louge.

“…an unqualified success, as bright as the colors used in the quilts themselves.”—Hollywood Reporter. 

“Quilters is a show pieced together with love and stitched with pride… a thing of beauty, comfort, and joy.”—NY Post.

“…a tender and moving theatre work, a human patchwork rippling in the breeze of memory.”—Newsweek.
