Tolton Live Performance

Watch a live performance of Tolton, a true story of America’s first black priest, on Monday, April 17th at 7:30 pm in Shelton, WA. Father Augustus Tolton is on the road to sainthood.

In an exciting blend of cinema and stage entertainment, Tolton actor Jim Coleman stars live alongside a cast of actors on the set’s giant screen. The stunning musical score is based on traditional African-American spirituals. These inspiring melodies are sung by incomparable Elissa Sanders as Mama Tolton, Father Tolton’s loving, feisty and saintly mother.

The national touring production of Tolton is a deeply personal tale of heartache and reconciliation and of victory over adversity. The drama speaks to audiences from a place we can all relate to: family, longing and belonging.

Wherever you’re coming from, Tolton will take you on a journey you’ll never forget.

Suitable for middle school age and up and runs 75 min. Bring a friend!
