With a jubilant, Grammy Award-winning score including jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, THE COLOR PURPLE has become Theatre Horizon's hottest selling ticket. Now, this regional premiere production will be the earliest extension in the company's history! Theatre Horizon is proud to announce that the musical will now run from November 8, 2018 through December 16, 2018.

Theatre Horizon's intimate staging of award-winning musical will be directed by local director and Broadway performer (Mamma Mia!, Godspell) Amina Robinson, who makes her company debut with this production.

"I am honored to join the team at Theatre Horizon for this intimate journey into the hearts of these amazing characters," Robinson said. "The word 'love' comes to mind when I think about THE COLOR PURPLE. When it feels like you have nothing left, where can love be found? The show answers that question in the heart of Celie's story. The answer is that love is found in us all."
