A Revolution of Her Own
Tuesday April 3, 2018
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM
Deborah Sampson, the first woman to enlist, to fight, and to be honorably discharged from the American Military, is showcased in this program chronicling her life.
As a self-educated master-less woman, she felt a higher calling, and on May 20, 1782, Deborah bound her chest, tied back her hair, and enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, as “Robert Shurtlieff.” The American Heroine takes you back in time!
Join Judith Kalaora as she captivates audiences in an hour-long program portraying this extraordinary woman.
Judith Kalaora is a professional actress, historical interpreter, and educator. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University and graduated from the Globe Education Program at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre of London.
