Audiences will again get to experience this show every Sunday through Nov. 9. The show features women who helped weave the fabric of Sedona and the Verde Valley. Their stories are heartwarming, often heartbreaking and rich with spirit. Audiences will enjoy hearing directly from these historical women who come alive on stage. Meet the first African-American women to own a business in Jerome, a saloon hall, Soiled Dove, from Flagstaff, a Chinese singsong girl, Latina Apolonia Chavez and Sedona Schnebly.
