“The First First Lady” at Leach Library
On Thursday, February 21 at 7:00 p.m., the Leach Library welcomes Ms. Anne Barrett for an evening performance of “The First First Lady”.
Anne Barrett has been entertaining audiences for over 10 years, all while writing and researching her own material. Ms. Barrett’s prior experience working with her local historical society and at the North Shore Music Theatre have helped bring her historical presentations to life.
Ms. Barrett will portray Mrs. Martha Washington as she takes the audience on a journey through her life, sharing her private family joys and sorrows. As the year is 1792, she will be relating her experiences thus far as the President's wife, detailing everything from her social obligations to the current political climate, as well as her concerns for her husband in the challenges he faces in guiding the new country.
This program is free and open to the public with seating limited to the first 90 individuals. It will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
