My Idlewild: The Musical

Saturday Aug 26 7:00pm
Holland Armory
16 W. 9th Street, Holland, MI 49423

In small little town, a little Northwest
I like to say it’s one of the best
It’s my, my….. Idlewild
Couldn’t wait ‘til spring
See what summer brings
New friends, summer games
Or even a 3-month fling
I’m talking bout, talking bout,
My Idlewild.

Established in 1912 and located in Northwest Michigan’s Lake County, Idlewild is the largest Black Resort in the United States. On the US National Registration of historic places, Idlewild, also known as the Black Eden, has a fascinating story born out of the Jim Crow era.

My Idlewild: The Musical, with original songs by Gezelle Grier Myers chronicles the people, famous and locally famous, who made Idlewild a very special place. A live band and vocal artists in a juke-joint atmosphere will bring to life historical Idlewild performers like the Four Tops, Dinah Washington, Fats Waller, and Sarah Vaughan. Attendees will also enjoy a cash bar and other refreshments during this once in a lifetime musical experience. (90 minutes)
