Women's History Interpretation
  I am passionate about Women's history!

When I was an undergraduate in the Theatre Department at the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee. I wanted to perform women's first person roles.  I started searching for material written by, or specifically for, women that would lend itself to theatrical production.

In my search I found, at that time, little that had been published. I began to acquire, for myself, bits and pieces from all sorts of unpublished writings, diaries, journals and oral histories.  I was elated!  I had discovered some great resources of women's fantastic writing. To me these women's themes—family, the work ethic, home as a springboard of life—needed to be expressed.

That's why I love to show women who are not represented in contemporary theatre—women who are true adventurers.  All I need to do is find their own words and then make the real history into a theatrical performance.

It's extremely gratifying to help a woman tell her own story—to use her own words and mold them into a production that encompasses women's real life!

Special Interest:

From 1992 until 2006 I taught various Elderhostel classes. Historical in nature, I combined performance, video and travel to teach the material. This included women’s history, Montana history and the Lewis and Clark journals.
In addition to my scripts I have two published books—Mattie, A Woman’s Journey West and Singing in the Saddle: The Life and Times of Yellowstone Chip
Current Work:
I am working on a biography about Richard Kletting, a Salt Lake City, Utah architect.
