A new musical drama
by Krista Eyler & Barbara Nichols
"The girls are back, and they've never sounded better. The Sparkletones is a lyrical love letter to a time and place where song and sentiment hit the road, have some fun, and find their truth."
- Derek McCracken, writer, BroadwayWorld.com
The Sparkletones is a heartwarming new musical drama about sisterhood and song, and how love endures no matter the time or distance.
