Originally developed and produced at the Denver Center Theatre company, this joyous and moving celebration of American Womanhood became a record-setting regional theater success before its presentations on Broadway and at the Edinburgh Festival. Combining music, dance movement and scenes of vivid dramatic intensity, the play pays eloquent tribute to the courage and spirit of our nation's pioneer woman.

"Who would have thought that quilts, quilting—quilters—had so much joy and pain, laughter and tears, so much life, beauty and drama in them?" ~ Drama-Logue.
"…an unqualified success, as bright as the colors used in the quilts themselves."
~ Hollywood Reporter.
"QUILTERS is a show pieced together with love and stitched with pride…a thing of beauty, comfort and joy."
~ NY Post.
"…a tender and moving theatre work, a human patchwork rippling in the breeze of memory."
~ Newsweek.

QUILTERS celebrates the strength, humor, faith and creativity of the women who helped settle the prairies of the American West. ASTERís production will feature folk instruments and a larger than usual cast, bringing greater warmth and depth to the musical numbers. Though many scenes are playful and light-hearted, because of the adult nature of some of the shadow blocks, ASTER is rating this production "PG-13".
