Live Theatrical Performance of First Ladies Coalition Tuesday April 30, 2019
6:00 PM until 7:30 PM
Actress & Writer Ginger Grace will perform a live theatrical production of The First Ladies Coalition. This special event is sponsored by the Judea Chapter of the DAR.
Ginger Grace plays Colleen, a resilient ex-con, immigrant and survivor of domestic violence, invites the audience to join four famous First Ladies as they step into her sewing shop! Via subtle impersonations, she transports us into the life and times of Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson and Mary Todd Lincoln. Mysteries and secrets are unveiled – hers & theirs – and with the help of these courageous women, Colleen turns a life of confinement into extraordinary possibility.
In 90 minutes, through the eyes of Colleen, we encapsulate the history of our country and the invaluable impact of these four First Ladies as they spoke out and changed the course of events in situations where women’s voices are often suppressed. They were forerunners – paving the way for our current wave of women in politics, the #MeToo Movement and social justice.
