Oh, Night Divine: André Courville and Sweet Cecilia

Courville, sisters Laura Huval and Maegan Berard, along with their first cousin Callie Guidry, bring their talents and their friendship to the stage.

Cross That River
Cross That River
Heymann Performing Arts Center, Lafayette, LA

A quarter of the cowhands in the West were Black. A Harlem composer, Allan Harris, found a way to honor their history. Cross That River, a musical journey, tells the story of Blue, a run-away slave who escapes from Louisiana to Texas and becomes one of America’s first Black Cowboys. Cross That River portrays a significant moment in American history where Black cowboys lived and helped settle the West. PASA tips its hat to our area’s Black Cowboys and we hope you will, too.
