'VIOLET' Presented by Blue Saint Productions in association with Hayes Theatre Co.


VIOLET is to be directed by Australian theatre icon Mitchell Butel with Musical Direction by Lucy Bermingham (Strictly Ballroom, Guilty Pleasures), Choreography by Amy Campbell (Guilty Pleasures, So You Think You Can Dance) and Set Design by Simon Greer (Man of La Manch). 

VIOLET is a musical, with music by Jeanine Tesori and libretto by Brian Crawley, based on the short story "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts. It tells the story of a young disfigured woman who embarks on a journey by bus from her farm in Spruce Pine, North Carolina, all the way to Tulsa, Oklahoma to find the preacher she believes can heal her. 
Facially scarred as a child in a tragic accident, Violet undertakes her search for beauty amidst the image obsessed landscape and racial tensions of the American South in the 1960s. Journeying across the country with a rag bag of fellow travellers, she discovers that true beauty is not always in the eye of the beholder.

With a vibrant, multi-genre score by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline or Change, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek The Musical), and libretto by Brian Crawley (The Little Princess), VIOLET encompasses show-stopping anthems, American roots, soul and gospel.

With warmest regards,
