It will be performed at 1 pm on Sunday, June 18, at the Wildish Theater, 630 Main St., Springfield.

The actress Jane Van Boskirk and the Wildish Theater (courtesy of Dan Egan, League member and theater manager) will donate a portion of each ticket purchased to the League when the purchase is made on line and the code word “Vote” is applied.

This is a great opportunity to get to know Eleanor Roosevelt! The play deals with Roosevelt’s influential and controversial place in American history, from her troubled childhood; her desire as a young woman to alleviate social problems; her marriage to four-term President Franklin Roosevelt; and her widowhood, which included an illustrious career at the newly founded United Nations.

Please share this message with your friends. Invite them to join you at the play! Put this event on your own Facebook page and share posts from the LWVLC page.
