Babes With Blades Fundraising Event for DC Trip

Benefit for the Peirce Washington DC Trip.

Have you ever been to our Nation’s capital? Maybe you went on a school trip! This year, for the first time in many years, the 7th and 8th grade students of Helen C. Peirce School will embark on this life-changing and exciting trip.

They just need a little help getting there.

Scholarships will be provided to those who apply. To help fund those scholarships we need your help! We need you and your friends to come to an amazing night of theatre!

Politics? Intrigue? Turning the status quo on its head?

Maybe that describes Washington D.C., but it also describes the Babes With Blades production of Henry V by William Shakespeare! This all female production paints the world as Henry the V ascends the throne after the death of his father and faces suspicion from within his country and pressure from without…..

Yes, All Female Henry V.

Director Hayley Rice says, “when you move beyond what’s considered traditional casting in classical works, it give the audience opportunity to look at the text with new eyes.” Click here to learn about the Babes with Blades Theatre Company.
