“Jenny,” a pro-life musical, stages its debut performance tonight in the O’Shaughnessy Educational Center auditorium.
“Jenny” is a romantic story about a young woman and her boyfriend struggling with an unplanned pregnancy in the early 1970s. In addition to the story of these historically-based characters, the tale gives an overview of the legal events that culminated in the legalization of abortion in the United States.
The production includes lyrical songs for solo and ensemble singing with instrumental ensemble as well. “Jenny” was written by local playwrights Robert Hindel and James Tarsney and features St. Thomas students Andy Menke, Joseph Turner and Ellie Jensen.
The play, which is open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. A free-will offering will be taken. More information about the play is available at The Catholic Spirit website.
