Theatre Arts Department Presents
OHS Theatre Arts department will be presenting RADIUM GIRLS by D.W Gregory from Thursday December 4th – Saturday December 6th.
In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie (Laura Branton) an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. (Stephanie Morrison, Jessica Dallessandro) Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer (Veronica Silva), a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder,(Rob Condas) an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends,(Britney Halterman, Zac Branciforte) who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
With Ryan Holcombe, Gunnar Michael, Hannah Isakowitz, Grant Seastream, Madeline Doane Aline Dolinh, Eryn Cooper and many, many more.
Tickets are $10.00 at the door.
