The Spirit of Harriet Tubman

New! – On a barren stage with only a trunk of costumes, Leslie McCurdy thrills her audience with her passionate portrayal of The Spirit of Harriet Tubman. For a breathtaking hour, she embodies the “spirit” of Harriet Tubman from her early childhood to her elder years.

Audiences share standing ovations, cheers and tears at this performance. There are many plays about Harriet Tubman, but none share her entire life story like a visit with The Spirit of Harriet Tubman. Leslie McCurdy portrays the life of the famous Underground Railroad conductor, recreating stories familiar and some rarely told, using words said to have been Tubman’s own. Through it all we learn of the faith and conviction that drove Tubman to follow her dreams; the spirit of the past connecting with the present, inspiring her charges to have the courage to do the same in envisioning their future.

A full service dinner is included at Big Bear Lodge before the performance at River Raisin Center for the Arts.
