About This Show

Caroline Or Change is a musical set in Lake Charles, Louisiana during the American civil rights movement, just before, after and during the Kennedy Assassination. The title character, Caroline Thibodeaux, is a black maid for a Southern Jewish family whose young son, Noah, is enamored of Caroline, a woman resistant to the sweep of change she sees around her. When Noah’s stepmother enlists Caroline’s help in a plan to teach him a lesson about leaving change in his pants pocket (since Caroline does the family’s laundry as part of her duties), the tide of change begins to affect Caroline’s life firsthand, and she must come to terms with the necessity and inevitability of the end of segregation.
