Nominated for 12 Tony Awards ®, The Scottsboro Boys is the ninth annual Baldwin Wallace University Music Theater Program Collaboration. Based on the Scottsboro Boys’ trial. Set in the framework of a Vaudeville show, and a show within a show, with big musical numbers ranging from flashy and exuberant to mournful and delicate that will feed your soul. Like Cabaret, this musical creates a dynamic social critique.
