Challenger: Soaring with Christa McAuliffe

Wednesday, June 126:30—8:00 PMLarge Conference RoomWilmington Memorial Library175 Middlesex Ave, Wilmington, MA, 01887

Ask anyone about Christa McAuliffe and they will tell you exactly where they were when the Challenger shuttle launched; however, few people understand who Mrs. McAuliffe really was. American’s Teacher in Space was an educational pioneer and her goals and accomplishments are explored in this multi-media performance experience, which debuted in 2016 in honor of the 30th Anniversary of the challenger launch.

Kalaora, Founder and Artistic Director of History at Play, has garnered nationwide attention for her one-woman, living history performances, chronicling the lives of legendary women. Her performances have received accolades from journalists, actors, and historians alike and have earned statewide and national recognition, as CHALLENGER: Soaring with Christa was honored by the Massachusetts Senate and House of Representatives, and is produced with the support and approval of both the McAuliffe and Corrigan Families. This family-friendly program is suitable for anyone grades 1 and up.

Capacity: 62 of 100 spaces available.
