“TANISHA FORDHAM THE EGOT” is the saga of one girl’s epic journey to snatch her free. And, this ain’t no regular musical.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating begins at 6:00 PM and the show begins at 7:00 PM. Feel free to bring your own comfy seat/blanket or — plan to sit in the chairs provided. There will be food vendors on site.

TANISHA FORDHAM THE EGOT is adapted from the poetic narrative novel by the same name. Available June 12, 2022, the novel will also be available on-site (as well as through online book-selling platforms).
