SUNY Broome Theater Director Katherine Bacon will be appearing again as Lady Bird Johnson in the upcoming performance of “First Ladies” by local playwright/producer Judith Present at 1:00 PM this Sunday, July 8 at the Equinunk Historical Society and Calder House.
“First Ladies: gives presidents’ wives a chance to tell their story. Besides Lady Bird Johnson the other First Ladies featured are Mary Lincoln, Dolley Madison and Nancy Reagan. First ladies are never voted for nor do they get paid, yet without them what would our presidents have done?
“Judith Present has created a rare and special experience that puts a light on the women who have helped make history. I am so proud to be depicting Lady Bird who was a great First Lady and who continued to work for the country long afterwards,” Katherine says. This play has been performed at museums, historical societies, and small theaters throughout our region.
That’s 1:00 PM this Sunday, July 8 at the Equinunk Historical Society, at 1972 Pine Mill Rd., Equinunk, Pa.
