Actress Janet Parnes will appear in “Quaker Girl Takes Center Stage: the Rise of Dolley Madison.”

Step out of your everyday routine and into the social and political whirl of post-Revolution America. Your guide will be Dolley Madison, the quiet Quaker girl who became one of America’s most fashionable, gracious, and powerful First Ladies. Discover how this patriot used her charm, wit, and resourcefulness to unite our country and influence it both socially and politically.

Janet Parnes, of Historical Portrayals by Lady J, has been delighting and educating audiences for nearly a decade. Through extensive research, Janet uses her talent for writing and performing to develop productions that make her audience feel as if they are in the living room with a fascinating friend.
