Natalie Daise stars in this one woman show  performance that tells the slave-turned-abolitionist’s story through five different characters, including Tubman herself, and was recently selected by as one of five “must-see” theater events in Central New York for 2015.

Natalie Daise Bio
I grew up in Central New York with the snow and ice, and also the gorgeous springs and autumns . It was there, while briefly a student at Nottingham High in Syracuse, that I saw my first play. Our class had taken a field trip to The Syracuse Stage to see Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. It was mesmerizing! I had no idea then that I would become a performer myself.
After moving to the Lowcountry of South Carolina more than 30 years ago, I became a storyteller and while doing research I came across journal entries about Harriet Tubman’s time on the South Carolina coast. I was excited about what I had learned and dug deeper. Until I began this research I hadn’t realized how very important she had been in the Central New York area as well. Bringing Becoming Harriet Tubman to Central New York feels like coming full circle in my own development.
The last time I performed in the Central New York area I was dancing with a big yellow polliwog in Gullah Gullah Island Live! This is a whole different kind of show, and I hope folk will enjoy it as much as I enjoy presenting it.

This performance is in collaboration with SUNY Oswego
