• Out of Our Father’s House — Saturday, Feb. 2 from 1 to 3 p.m. and Monday, Feb. 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This moving play is drawn from the diaries, journals and letters of women: a schoolgirl — founder of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, an astronomer, a labor organizer, a minister, a doctor and a woman from the Jewish ghetto.
They are seen as they grow up, marry, bear children and face being ostracized for wanting careers.
Open auditions are planned for “Out Of Our Father’s House,” a play about six very influential women in history.
Directors are seeking six to seven females to fill roles.
No need to bring anything, just show up and the Director will have material for people to read.
