We Did It For You! Women's Journey Through History tells the story of how women got their rights in the United States. With catchy musical numbers and a dash of comic relief, this highly entertaining and educational musical is a must see for teens and adults. In a time when our rights are being questioned, We Did It For You! shines light on how we got to where we are. |
After the performance, we will have a very special treat! The great-great-granddaughter of women's suffrage activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton will speak. Coline Jenkins, an activist for women's history and recognition, is on a campaign to overthrow the bronze patriarchy in our park systems.
Reception to follow.
"This heartwarming play takes audiences on a profound emotional journey that results in a deepened awareness of, and appreciation for, women in history upon whose shoulders we stand today. I urge you to run, don't walk, to see this magnificent performance! - Women's Information Network
"The performance was so outstanding and moving that I got goose bumps and cried. A performance in which each historical figure describes her own trials and accomplishments is so much better than just reading about the woman in a book." - Lilly Ledbetter, Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
"There is a sense of wonderment, gratitude and deep humility awaiting the audiences of "We Did it For You". An astonishing revelation of women's often unrecognized accomplishments throughout history...playwright Thea Iberall offers a multi century parade of feminine genius and courage .. and does it with humor and fun. Your daughters must see this but, the men in your family will enjoy it too. -- Paul Williams, Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe Winning Songwriter
It captures the interests of all age groups, especially our younger generation to know where we have been in order to see the potential of where we can go when we work together!
What I like best is that it's FUN and funny. It was just perfect!
Never has my heart been touched so deeply by a production.
