About Abigail Breslin in When Change Comes
Join Abigail Breslin ("Little Miss Sunshine"), Jerome Bell ("American Idol"), Matt Cusson, and Daniel Watts alongside cast members of "Hamilton," "Bandstand," "Finding Neverland," and "Cats" for the 10th anniversary gala of Mark Stuart Dance Theatre featuring a performance of "When Change Comes: A Movement Forward," a powerful dance musical that asks one question: Can the act of “seeing” each other without judgment or fear break the cycle of intolerance?
"When Change Comes" transports audiences through a century of music, movement, and human connection in the shadow of our nation’s most defining moments. Using Mark Stuart Dance Theatre’s explosive brand of storytelling, "When Change Comes" follows three love stories set against the backdrops of the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement, and the LGBTQ Rights Movement. Danced to hit standards from the 1930’s, 1960’s, and the 2000’s, the show features 7 dancers, 3 vocalists and a 5-piece band.
"When Change Comes" aims to inspire and empower audiences to create positive change in their communities. This theatrical experience includes a 90 minute performance of "When Change Comes" followed by discussions with Mark Stuart and the cast. We will ask: how might we commit to small everyday acts of kindness, learn to truly see each other, and build empathetic dialogue about equality and tolerance.
