Western Women Theatre Presentation

To celebrate Women’s History Month, The East Bonner County Library District presents Western Women: Pioneers & Prostitutes, a one-woman show performed by Melinda Strobel. The program takes place on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at 7:00 pm at the Sandpoint Library.  This composite performance introduces audiences to a variety of women who helped shape the early American West. Among them audiences will “meet” Bethenia Owens-Adair, the first female doctor in Oregon, a female stage-coach driver named Charley Parkhurst and Idaho’s own Molly b’Dam, the legendary madam of Murray.  The spirits of grandmothers and great grandmothers is brought to life in these humorous portrayals of struggles and perseverance in the untamed west. 

Melinda Strobel studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and has a degree in theatre from Willamette University.  Ms. Strobel has performed on stage and in film projects in Oregon and in Atlanta, Georgia and toured extensively throughout the Unites States with her one-woman show, Susan B. Anthony: The Napoleon of the Movement.   The program is free and is supported in part by a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council, a State-based program affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
