The Story:

Today it may be hard to imagine a wife being committed to a mental asylum because she disagrees with her husband's opinions. Yet in 1861, that happened to Elizabeth Packard. Audiences will be inspired by Mrs. Packard's fight for her freedom, and the right to care for her children.

Mrs. Packard will show you a slice of history, and introduce you to a courageous woman whose story you will never forget.

Ushers and Box Office Volunteers Sought

Ushers and box office staff are also needed for this show. Ushers "man the doors" of the auditorium, take tickets and hand out programs. They have reserved seats to watch the show. Box office staff help sell tickets and set out refreshments. They receive a complimentary ticket to see the show on another night. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
