Wow. We meet the organizers of the Centennial including Kim Salter, Dianne Midoshi, and Gloria Taylor. Everyone is excited about the two day event, and we are finding the excitement contagious. At 10, we have rehearsal and then we go to the Crest theatre and load-in and set up.It’s a huge stage with a big screen behind us. I will be up in the control room way at the top of the 900 seat theatre.
There are two movies before us. We watch “Seneca Falls” which is a turning point for all of us, so much of our themes is in that movie. We can only partially watch Martha Whitlock’s movie about California Women Getting the Vote but the cast has to warm up. It’s fun to watch because we are in it!
Harriet arrives — she had to fly in that day. And then we do the show, it goes great. The audience applauds for each character which is fun. At dinner later we talk to people who want to license the show, and we meet the author of a book about women getting the vote. What a day!
