Steamer No.10 Theatre produces professional theatre for young audiences based on children's literature and NYS history. Our current repertoire includes: Rumpelstiltskin, Pied Piper, Cinderella Tales (compilation of: Yeh Shen, Glass Slipper, and Billy Beg and the Bull), Reluctant Dragon, Clinton's Ditch - Saga of the Erie Canal, among others. All of our shows are created to appeal to an audience aged 3 to 93, with a preference for performing to an audience of children with adults. Our goal is to inspire children and parents to go find the book, or books that the show is based on and read it for themselves. We love books and our life is about bringing them to life on the stage while remaining to true to the author, or the tradition out of which the story came. Each show is created to tour with 3-4 actors and a stage manager, a touring set and costumes; depending on venue we can also bring lighting and sound system. Steamer No.10 is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts The Key is Reading – it Unlocks the Treasures of the World - Children’s Literature Brought to Life.

Musco, Penny STEAL AWAY: THE STORY OF A HOMESTEADER AND AN EXODUSTER History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
STEAL AWAY is my one-woman show about a little-known piece of American history, which I originally wrote and performed as Artist-in-Residence of the National Park Service. Set in 1880, STEAL AWAY is told from the perspective of Priscilla, a white woman who leaves the East to homestead in the Plains with her husband and children. She crosses paths with Abigail and her family, former slaves who fled the South after Reconstruction ended. The narrative weaves together historical accounts of those who sought free land through The Homestead Act, and the significant but nearly forgotten movement of 20,000-40,000 blacks who headed north when the last federal troops were removed from the South. These African Americans called themselves Exodusters, likening their flight to the Biblical exodus of Moses and the Israelites out of Egypt. The show's title comes from the Negro spiritual of the same name. I’m a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of national publications. I also have a B.A. in Theatre. I’ve performed STEAL AWAY at many locations since 2009. While the program is appropriate any time of the year, it’s an especially good fit for Black or Women’s History Month, in February and March, respectively.
