We Did It For You! Live Stream Musical Event

October 21 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Price: Free

We Did It For You! Women’s Journey Through History is an engaging play that tells of the struggles and triumphs women have undergone to get their basic rights in America told by the women who were there.

In this live-streamed staged reading, high school student Melanie must write about the most influential woman in history – the play provides her with an entertaining and quick tour through that journey, starting with the struggle women had in the 17th century Puritan Revolution through to our 21st century empowered women politicians.

The staged-reading will have live actors in costume on Zoom with slides to enhance the educational experience and videos of the songs for entertainment. Stick around afterwards for a Q&A with the playwright, producers, and actors. Check out a sneak preview of the event.

Registration is free. Donations will be gratefully accepted to help cover the costs of this musical event.

Registration closes two hours before the event starts so that we can communicate about the event with registered attendees. We cannot accept registrations after 4:30 p.m. EDT on 10/21.

Additional tickets have been made available thanks to the cast and crew of the production: >>> Click here <<< for tickets.

Each registration will receive access to a Zoom link to view this event live.
