Tolton Live Performance
Watch a live performance of Tolton, a true story of America’s first black priest, on Wednesday, April 19th – 6 pm at Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish in Bremerton. 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.
