Stages presents You Are Cordially Invited to Sit-In
Houston, Texas. Spring of 1960. It’s the peak of youth in the lives of four Black college freshman; some are ready for fun, some for success, some for love, and some just want to pledge and party, and in Third Ward they have all of the potential in the world... a segregated world. No longer content with being separate, the four join the revolution against inequality and racism and find the path to adulthood along the way.
Set to the love songs, dance hits, and revolutionary tunes of the ‘60s-‘70, this rockin’ new musical is inspired by the real story of Houston’s first sit-in that led to the city’s desegregation, and full of up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor.
