Play by Natalie Wilson
Music by Kat Sherrell
In 1943 Mississippi, a young trumpeter has the chance to fulfill her dream of playing with the hottest all-girl swing band in the country. There's just one catch: she's white, it's a "colored" band, and this is the Jim Crow south.
Nat & Kat are delighted to present their latest collaboration in its first staged reading with a live jazz band!
