10/21/2016 - CHALLENGER: Soaring With Christa McAuliffe Performance on October 21, 2016

Who is America’s favorite teacher? Ask anyone about Christa McAuliffe and they will tell you exactly where they were when the Challenger shuttle launched; however, few people understand who Mrs. McAuliffe really was. America’s teacher in space was an educational pioneer and her goals and accomplishments are explored in this multi-media experience, which honors the 30th anniversary of the Challenger launch. Performed by Judith Kalaora.

Judith Kalaora, Founder and Artistic Director of History At Play, has garnered nationwide attention for her one-woman, living history performances, chronicling the lives of legendary women. Her performances have received accolades from journalists, actors, and historians alike and have earned her national recognition, as she performed her original program, A REVOLUTION OF HER OWN!, about Revolutionary War heroine Deborah Sampson, at the United Solo Theatre Festival, on 42nd St., in New York City.
