Come and see Anne Allgood lead a cast of Seattle’s finest professional talent in a grand experiment – a shift in voice from father to mother in a classic American musical pondering the folly and cost of war. Anne re-interprets a role made famous by Jimmy Stewart in the film in 1965 and John Cullum on Broadway in 1975. Experience the show in the intimate setting of ACT Theatre’s Allen Theatre in an acoustic performance of a Broadway classic which is rarely produced. Head home trying to answer why this show isn’t better known. Why didn’t it become a broader, longer lasting success in our culture? Is is still relevant in the way it tackles its themes? If you love musicals and love to talk about them, welcome home.


Join us for this first show in a season of Defying Expectations!
In our staging of Shenandoah, a mother defies every expectation of both her gender and any parent in the Civil War by standing up to the powers that be and refusing to give her children to the confederate war effort. Defying Expectations is all about seeing stories of Americans overcoming the lines that divide us – whether it’s race, gender, politics, class, whatever. Come join our conversation – for the love of musicals!
