About the Show: Girls are so often stereotyped, but Jacqueline will climb to great lengths to prove them all wrong! Once upon a time, Jacqueline had a brother named Jack. The entire village thought Jack was so smart, strong and witty, but when the family ran out of money it was Jacqueline who used her brain to get them out of trouble. Follow Jackie up the beanstalk as she shatters stigma to discover it wasn’t because she was less capable, but because she was made to believe so. Now, she has the chance to prove her worth. Whether you are young or old, this fun and interactive one-woman show is important for everyone to see. Not because it’s unique, but because it’s not. It is the story of many girls.

About the Show: Shirley Chisholm: The Chisholm Trail is inspired by the life and legacy of Shirley Chisholm. “Brandi La’Sherrill, the storyteller” challenges audiences to confront the pre-judgments made each time we step into a room full of strangers, much less step behind a podium as the first black woman elected to the United States Congress and the first black woman Democratic Presidential candidate.  As audiences learn of Shirley Chisholm’s impact as a woman who dared to be a catalyst for change, they also learn how snap judgments prevented her from having a seat at the table. But… “If they don’t give you a seat to the table, bring a folding chair.”- Shirley Chisholm.
