In this motivational, musical program, Kate Campbell Stevenson brings to life a diverse group of historical American women, emphasizing how they overcame their own personal and/or societal barriers to obtain their goals.
With song, monologue, and movement, each woman’s distinct character springs to life. The program features dramatic portrayal, music and poetry. Clever costume and make-up changes create magical transitions between historical time periods with interactive audience participation. A question & answer session follows the performance.
