A Story of a Boy and His Maid Will Leave You Breathless – See Caroline, or Change This Saturday

Looking for something new to do on Saturday night? Join Spinning Tree Theatre for the Kansas City premiere of Olivier Award-winning Best New Musical “Caroline, or Change” on Saturday, November 9th!

Set in one of the most pivotal times in America's history, the Tony-nominated “Caroline, or Change” is riveting, moving and awe-inspiring. Featuring a virtuosic score by Jeanine Tesori (Shrek The Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie), it blends blues, gospel, and traditional Jewish melodies, creating a breathtaking medium for Kushner's provocative and personal story.

In 1963, the Gellman family and their African-American maid, Caroline, live in sleepy Lake Charles, Louisiana. Caroline is drifting through life as a single mother of four working in a service job to a white family. A fragile, yet beautiful friendship develops between the young Gellman son, Noah, and Caroline. Noah's stepmother, Rose, unable to give Caroline a raise, tells Caroline that she may keep the money that Noah leaves in his pockets.

Caroline balks and refuses to take money from a child, but her own children desperately need food, clothing, and shoes. Outside of the laundry room, some of the greatest social advancements that the country has seen are being set in motion, and change is knocking on the door.

“Caroline, or Change” produces a valuable theatrical experience that continues to thrill audiences the world over. It is a story that must be shared and will touch hearts. It is a story that will open minds. It is a story that will change theatergoers for the better. Featuring one of the most powerful female roles in musical theatre, “Caroline, or Change” is a true tour de force that will leave audiences breathless.
