A powerful story of courage and perseverance, The Power of Harriet T is based on the story of Harriet Tubman, who fled slavery and risked her life to help others find safe haven in Canada via the Underground Railroad. Harriet believed that if she could escape, others could too, and she worked with the network of people who hid and guided slaves north to freedom. She was completely devoted to the idea that "all people are created equal".
"Powerful message sent about acceptance, tolerance and celebration of differences." - Glenwood School

After dodging an avalanche, she befriends a mysterious Yeti who helps her reach the top of the mountain. Led by Peg's parents, the audience participates in the expedition by creating the imaginary events and places along the way.
“The avalanche was awesome ... Walking up into the boat was fun ... I liked the songs they sang ... The yeti head and hands were so cool." - Kindergarten student from Southern Ontario
"The students as young as 4 and as old as 9 equally enjoyed the performance. They all could relate to Peg's adventurous spirit and enjoyed helping to create the surroundings of Peg's imaginary events and places.
