'Crowns' Performance and Discussion

“Crowns,” one of the most produced musicals in the county, explores the lives of the “hat queens,” six women in the South whose stories of love, loss, identity and sisterhood are woven into the hats that crown their heads and the dynamic gospel songs that speak their truth.

At the conclusion of this program, join the cast and the producers for an exploration of how gospel music feeds the emotional and social life, as well as the spiritual.

Tickets for the program can be had for $8 general, $5 for youth, seniors, and members of the Centralia Cultural Society.

New Harmonies will be on display in Centralia between July 17th and August 28th.

Art Center Hours: Monday-Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm; Saturday-Sunday, 1:00 – 4:00 pm.

“Crowns” is based on the photography book “Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats” by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry.
