Ella is a pop culture obsessed teenager living in present day New York City. One afternoon she is transported back in time to meet the Jubilee Singers, a choir still in operation today that was founded shortly after the Civil War at one of the first schools for freed slaves, and gains a new appreciation for history and education.
Written by Myla Churchill and first produced by New York City Children’s Theater in 2005, the musical includes traditional African-American spirituals and was called “uplifting” and “captivating” by The New York Times.
