Giveaway: Tickets to see “NORTH” at Walton Arts Center

In an age when Americans often take the concept of freedom for granted, it’s so important to see stories like NORTH come to life on stage. We hope you’ll take your older kids (recommended for kids aged 10 and up) to see this powerful show by Ashli St. Armant. This new musical is about a teenage boy and his mom who escaped slavery through the Underground Railroad.

This week we’re giving away 4 tickets to the show NORTH on Sunday, April 28, 2024 at the Walton Arts Center.


In her debut theatrical production, Ashli St. Armant presents NORTH, a powerful new musical about a teenage boy and his mother who escape slavery in the deep south through the Underground Railroad. NORTH is a moving story that explores the multi-faceted reality of Black life during the antebellum period and which aims to bring out the full range of experiences of freedom seekers. While acknowledging the realities of slavery, the narrative explores themes of optimism, bravery, playfulness, wonder, suspense and mystery with original musical compositions steeped in jazz and other historically Black music genres.

  1. The freedom to get all the things I need easily-food, water, housing, medical care, etc. It is just not the case in many parts of the world or even in our community for some.

  2. I highly value my freedom of speech. Not to mention my freedom to worship the way I want and whom I want.
