Special Events


with authors Pamela Chatterton-Purdy and Rev. Dr. David A Purdy
on Sunday, July 25 at 4 PM at our new Outdoor Stage

Cape Cod Theatre Company/Harwich Junior Theatre is proud to host this special book signing event!  Pamela and David Purdy’s story starts as a mixed-race family involved in the Civil Rights Movement and continues with their ever-deepening sensitivity to racism and their appreciation of their very special family. HJT played an important role in their lives…

“Summers at the Harwich Junior Theatre became an oasis away from the racism of the suburbs! Kids of all backgrounds, Cape Verdean, Black and white, all participated in building sets and acting in plays! One summer Jessica was cast in the lead role of Snow White. Kristen, Ron and Stephen were cast in a wonderful play, Emil and the Detectives.”  -Pamela Chatterton-Purdy

“This book recounts the struggles and joys of the Purdy family as they develop a family of strong individuals who recognize, celebrate, and cherish each other. Their bonds of love offer lessons to all of us as we find our way to celebrate and support one another, not in spite of, but because of our differences.”

-William H. “Smitty” Smith, Ed. D.
Founding Executive Director, National Center for Race Amity

Please join us on July 25th at 4 PM at our new OUTDOOR STAGE for this very special event.
