Join us for a FREE family-friendly production about ancient Egypt, specifically a female pharaoh named Hatshepsut.  

 

She was an amazing pharaoh but after her reign, the next pharaoh erased her name off of all the statues and monuments.  She was erased from history and we did not know she existed for over 3000 years! We are excited to bring the story of Hatshepsut to the stage. This story reminds us of how critical it is to remember our history.

I am filled with gratitude for the many amazing collaborations with artists, audiences, and supporters I have enjoyed for the past 10 years. The impact of Beacon’s work was realized in diverse communities through the input and creativity of many committed individuals and partnering organizations.
