Violet tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image obsessed landscape of the 1960s. Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.

“Ellen Kaye in a tour de force performance (Sutton Foster played the role on Broadway and could not possibly have been better than Littleton’s Ellen) plays Violet.” — Beki Pineda,

“Throughout, a country band, led by Donna Debreceni, plays the lively, pleasing score, set to the side of the stage. It is a really nice addition to this production. Voices are strong and the melodies are fun to hear.” – Sonya Ellingboe, Littleton Independent

“Not a single cast member goes unnoticed as they tackle a score rich with bluegrass, gospel and the kind of music that makes you feel a mixture of determination and warmth.” — Chris Arneson, Broadway World Denver
