The curtain will rise on “Women of Courage” at 7:30 p.m. today (Friday) at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse, 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd., and at 2 p.m. Sunday at Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave.
In “Women of Courage,” six actresses will tell stories of notable women through “A Conversation with Hattie McDaniel,” “Lunchtime Temp” and “Hazel Speaks!”
The plays will take theatergoers into the lives of Bobbi, an office worker; McDaniel, the Hollywood actress; and Hazel Wolf, who was both a member of the Communist Party and secretary of the Seattle Audubon Society.
The suggested donation is $15, with proceeds benefiting the League of Women Voters' Clallam chapter.
“Not only are the characters being portrayed as amazing 'Women of Courage,' the actors who bring them to life on the stage are as well,” said Rebecca Redshaw, the Sequim playwright who penned all three stories.
