Our show debuted in February 2017 with limited resources and even fewer ticket sales. The set was comprised of 1 couch, 1 chair and roughly 30 attendees. Due to the lack of resources, the original cast sang Acapella and left opening weekend dejected and uncertain if there was a future for this show. Our show creator/writer went back to the drawing board. With a new script, new music and a new cast in tow, Selma was ready for a second go at musical theatre. Conceived & written by J.P. Haynes, since 2018, Selma The Musical has sold out venues nationally through 2020 entertaining audiences from 1,000 – 7,000 across the U.S. and in the Bahamas. Selma The Musical has shown at The World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA before a sold- out audience of 5,000+, as well as on the Royal Caribbean. As far South as Alabama and as far East as New York, Selma the Musical: The Untold Stories has won the hearts of audiences nationwide.
Entering 2020, on the incline of their most successful touring season, the award- winning musical was crippled, like many Broadway & Off- Broadway productions by the Covid-19 pandemic. Taking a 2-year hiatus was inevitable. However with a new script, new music and an all-new cast, this soul-stirring musical theatre experience is gearing up for a brand-new audience. Selma connects with diverse audiences of various ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Selma the Musical is timely and in a particularly divisive, millennial society, it couldn’t be more relevant and needed today!
