Rachel, a Musical - January 19 & 20, 7:30 PM
Rachel a new musical: Friday, Jan 19 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, Jan 20 at 7:30 pm (Assembly Room). Rachel is an original musical about biologist and nature writer Rachel Carson, author of "Silent Spring," which sparked the modern environmental movement. Carson (b. 1907 - d. 1964) struggled as a female scientist. Her skills as a writer eventually brought her success and critical acclaim. But when the destructive nature of DDT and other pesticides was brought to her attention Carson jeopardized her success, health, and relationships to take a stand for the earth. This exciting production is co-produced by Ari Laura Keith, Artistic Director of Theatre 167 in NYC and a recent Montclair transplant and friend of Union, and the UCC Players.
