History Dinner Theater: Clara Barton, Red Cross Angel
- Mar 31, 2017
Help us celebrate not only National Women's History Month but Red Cross Month with a fun, interactive and inspiring show by an award-winning actress. Clara Barton defied society’s conventions and risked her life in order to help others, thus becoming a true heroine. A passionate and moving public speaker, Clara dramatically relates how she became the first woman to work for the Federal Government, its first female department head, and America’s first woman ambassador. You’ll be swept into her story of the Civil War, dangers of nursing at the Battle of Antietam, and her struggle to get America to sign the Geneva Convention. There are few better role models than Clara Barton, who still inspires us to “Never Give Up!” In 2002, Ms. Jung's Clara Barton show won top honors for Solo Theatrical Performance from the Maryland State Arts Council. Mary Ann Jung is an award-winning actress and Smithsonian scholar. She has appeared on CNN, the Today Show, Good Morning America, and in newspapers around the world as famous women from history.
