This inspiring documentary tracks the first-ever high school production of the musical The Color Purple, a Tony Award–winning adaptation of Alice Walker’s 1982 novel. Many of the musical’s themes mirror the lives of the at-risk students involved, and its story plays out through the lens of their struggles and triumphs during the play’s rehearsals and performances. As the charismatic, North Carolina–based cast and crew are propelled into a new world of opportunity through their hard work, Purple Dreams offers a powerful example of just how vital arts education programs can be! (72 mins., DCP)
