    JUDY: Stonewalled! 

    By Denise Hay with Rick Kish

    On June 22, 1969 Judy Garland dies at only 47. In the early morning hours of June 28, a community fights back. These two worlds collide in this fictional theatrical production with music. The play takes place at a tribute to Judy Garland in a little cabaret bar just down the street from the Stonewall Inn.

    The action happens as the infamous riots break out.

    JUDY: Stonewalled! is a glimpse into what it meant to be gay before the ‘Stonewall Riots’ and those critical moments where decisions are made that can change……everything!

    Featuring... Natalie Howard-Grant singing the songs of Judy Garland with Rick Kish*, Martha Zimmerman*, John White, Mark Medeiros & Michael Bergeron *appearing courtesy of Canadian Actors Equity Association under the terms of the Festival Policy
