We received some local cultural council grants from towns in Massachusetts to put on more performances. We had to find local venues in Norfolk and in Natick.
The Norfolk Public Library has a great space for meetings and performances. The cast was very excited about putting on another performance but we did have to make cast adjustments. We’ve been auditioning women who are hearing about what we are doing.
We’ve learned to take ticket reservations. For Norfolk, we got 100 people to make reservations. Husbands of cast members help take tickets and set up the chairs. The November 18 performance goes great.
On December 10, 2017, we perform in Natick at the Common Street Spiritual Center. Another 14-year-old wants to be in the show. We take her name. Carolyn Waters is the musical director at Common Street and she plays Rosa Parks and Anna J. Cooper. (pictures © 2018 Damianos Photography)
