Jam-Packed Performance Schedule for Touring Show “Daughters of Africa”

Posted on February 6, 2012


If you know Jack Reuler you know he is a numbers fanatic! He relishes in weird number coincidences like founding Mixed Blood at 22 on 2-2 or like opening the Center of the Margins Festival on 11/11/11. With that in mind, we know he is jazzed about this bit of news coming from our touring world.

“Daughters of Africa”, one of this seasons’ 5 touring shows, will have 4 performances, on 4 different college campuses, in 4 different states, in 2 days! The show will perform at the College of St. Mary in Omaha, Nebraska Monday morning and will finish the day at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. On Tuesday the team will drive to North Dakota and perform at the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton and conclude the day at the University of Minnesota, Crookston! Whew!

“Daughters of Africa” is a tour-de-force musical performance encompassing three centuries in the lives of African American women, from a slave woman right up to Oprah. Featuring songs from Bessie Smith to Aretha Franklin, Lena Horne to Beyoncé, it is an energetic commemoration of the accomplishments of a greatly under-appreciated segment of American society.

The show has a public performance at Mixed Blood on Saturday, February 11 at  3:00 PM as part of our 55454 Neighborhood series.

We hope you get a chance to see the show before the tour ends Feb. 18! Call Charlie Moore (612.338.0937) to book “Daughters of Africa” or any of our amazing touring shows!
