Wild Women and Wine Returns to Barker Mansion
Mar 10 07:00 PM - 09:00 PM
Barker Mansion - Michigan City
The public is invited to celebrate Women’s History Month at the Barker Mansion on Saturday, March 10. Back and revamped for it’s second year, Wild Women and Wine will highlight the unconventional women who have shaped Northwest Indiana history through the decades.
The evening begins at 7 pm Central Time with wine and sweets. The highlight of the event will be a performance from Metamorphis Traveling Theatre titled Duneland Diaries. During the show, which will be held in the mansion’s Drawing Room, two of the eccentric, eye-turning women of La Porte county will meet head-to-head. Diana of the Dunes and Belle Gunness will discuss their fates over tea, complete with music, laughter and bitter rivalry. Belle will be portrayed by Helen Williams and Dana Chartier will take the part of Diana. Doug Moon will serve as a waiter in the play, as well as taking the roles of the men in the lives of Belle and Diana. The show is written by Ken Brelsfoard and will be directed by Judith Joseph.
“We featured both Belle and Diana during our presentation at last year’s Wild Women and Wine,” said Barker Mansion Director Jessica Rosier. “This historical fiction play is fun way to expand upon their stories, with the wonderful help of Metamorphis Traveling Theatre.”
The evening will close at 9 pm, after guests have had the opportunity to view all three floors of the mansion.
Advance registration is required through Eventbrite or by calling the mansion at (219) 873-1520. A $28 ticket includes two glasses of wine, sweets, a tour and the program. Those wishing to purchase a ticket without alcohol included can receive a discounted rate of $20. This is a 21+ event.
