From Band to Bawdy: Tuesday, March 9th 6:30-7:30 PM

by: Jessica Harrington

Many of the Colonies forbade playacting on the grounds that it was morally detrimental. Theater has been used to ridicule, persuade, titillate, amuse and outrage audiences from every class. This lecture takes a look at the evolution of theater from clandestine Colonial performances that landed the players in court to Vaudeville shows that packed theaters. Anne Barrett is Vice President of the Topsfield Historical Society, and was named Storyteller of The Year by the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau.
