FringeArtsMap

Wheelchair Accessible


When the students of The Paul Green Rock Academy opened for The Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret at FringeArts back in December 2019, Martha just knew she had to do something special with them in the future. Well, the future is now. Martha Graham Cracker will join more than 30 elite Paul Green Rock Academy students, including a choral section, for this one-of-a-kind drag performance. Martha will, naturally, play the role of Jesus. And Martha and the students will dazzle you with some Martha Graham Cracker favorites.

This show is seated and for all ages. All performers are vaccinated.
