The Actors Studio Presents: Iron Butterflies
March 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us on our YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/CustomHouseMuseum) at 6:30pm on Friday, March 5, 2021 as we welcome back the Actor’s Studio of Newburyport to the Custom House’s monthly Virtual First Friday event.
Players from The Actors Studio return with a virtual version of their annual Women’s history month program HERstory. The theme this year is “Iron Butterflies,” focused on the hundred-year anniversary of the women’s suffrage movement, and how its intersection with abolitionism both helped and hindered each movement (with a local twist). The Iron Butterfly became a symbol of the American suffragists, who earned the nickname in honor of their determination, and many wore small butterfly pins to signal their support of the movement.
Additionally, the Actor’s Studio feel the butterfly is a compelling symbol of rebirth and resilience for 2021. Camille Garro and Adair Rowland will be on hand to talk about the program, and answer questions after a short performance from the program. This presentation will serve as the launch of The Actor’s Studio’s 2021 “Women’s HERstory Month.”
