March 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25 – $35
Drawing on diaries, letters, publications, and biographies and combining theater, history, multimedia, audience interaction, and good old-fashioned story telling, She’s History! brings to life the true tales of fabulous females. Going back and forth from the past to the present, Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian Amy Simon poignantly finds the funny as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire as she raises her two daughters. $35 per person; $25 for youth/students (this show is suitable for all ages but best enjoyed by people 10 years old and up).
Visitors are encouraged to arrive early (up to one hour in advance) to view the historic house.
