Addy: An American Girl Story

Seattle Children’s Theatre is proud to present the story of Addy Walker, a brave nine-year-old slave girl struggling for freedom and striving to reunite her family. Based on the popular Addy book series by Connie Porter, and adapted for the stage by celebrated African-American playwright and Seattle resident Cheryl L. West, Addy: An American Girl Story takes audiences on a journey with its young heroine from the darkness of slavery, through the uncertainty of escape, and into the bright lights of freedom in the big city.

The Addy books are a part of the ever-popular American Girl series. This collection of books skillfully educates about history as it tells the tales of eight different American girls’ lives  from the eve of the American Revolution to the home front of 1944.  Set on a North Carolina plantation in 1864, Addy brings to life the tale of a young girl and her mother who must flee the oppressive life of slavery, enduring a terrifying separation from their family and the hardships of escape on their journey to freedom.

Addy: An American Girl Story stars Myxolydia Tyler as Addy; Demene Hall as Momma;  Tanesha Ross as Harriet;  Felicia Vonshell Loud as Sarah; Peter Crook and Bradford Farwell in multiple roles as Master Stevens, Mr. Cooper and the Soldier; Lance Spencer McQueen as Poppa and Uncle Solomon; Marianne Owen in multiple roles as Missus, Miss Caroline and Mrs. Ford; Rachel Pate in multiple roles as Aunt Lula, Miss Dunn, Mabel and Sally; and Damion Rochester as Sam.
