ABOUT
19: A Musical 100 Years

in the Making

19 is the dynamic and little-known story of Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Inez Milholland and all of the suffragists who fought to get women the right to vote -  the 19th Amendment. The inspirational story of these fearless women is brought to life through jazz, traditional musical standards style, spoken word, hints of gospel and dance. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment; our goal is to get a full production of 19 up and running, and onto a stage by the end of 2019.

19 is more than a musical, it is part of a movement. All will be touched by Alice and the suffragist's stories, but probably none more than girls and young women. Empowered with the knowledge that they too can make a difference, they will see that their voices, like those that have come before them, can change the course of history.


Alice Paul and her fight for equality have been re-imagined for a new generation with a poignant and uplifting message that will resonate for years to come. In an age where women’s rights have finally become an important issue again, the time for 19 is now.
