Westford Museum partner hosts free performance celebrating women’s history

-

WESTFORD — The Westford Museum has partnered with History At Play to provide a free virtual performance for residents.

The museum has offered expanded programming during March, including its “Hard Rock Mining” exhibit earlier in the month.

Created to educate and entertain audiences, History at Play uses Immersive Living Experiences for its performances. These experiences “breathe life into the stories of influential and often forgotten figures,” according to the organization.

History at Play’s debut performance “A Revolution of Her Own!” premiered in 2010. This play, “World War Women: The Unsung Heroines of WWII” follows women who challenged fascism during World War II.

“Blowing up rail tracks; descrambling German Enigma messages; and flying dangerous missions, these true stories are not for the faint of heart and may be the most influential and often forgotten victories of the war,” wrote the Museum in a news release.

The performance features History at Play Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora in a multimedia performance. According to the Museum, the performance “recalls the triumphs of our greatest heroes.”

“By providing programming that features aspects of the daily lives, activities, and achievements of Westford residents, we strive to expand and enrich understanding of how our town continues to evolve,” wrote the Museum in a press release. “We foster an environment of teaching and learning that strengthens our sense of community. We will collect, preserve, and exhibit documents, photographs, objects, and sites historically significant to Westford, and encourage outside efforts to do the same.”

The performance is scheduled for Tuesday, March 29 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Registration information can be found here. For more information about this topic, please contact Linda Greene by calling 978-692-5550, or email Linda at director@museum.westford.org.
