COOLEY DICKINSON HOSPITAL: LIVING HISTORY VIGNETTES
BRINGING HISTORY TO LIFE AT COOLEY DICKINSON HOSPITAL
On Thursday, January 6th, 2011 Cooley Dickinson Hospital celebrated their 125th anniversary with a trip back in time, courtesy of Enchanted Circle Theater. Five living history vignettes and monologues, based on primary source documents, written by Priscilla Kane Hellweg and Rachel Kuhn, provided the historical backdrop of the celebration.
“For our 125th Anniversary event, we wanted to do something different; something that would engage our guests and donors right from the start and bring our rich and interesting history to life. Enchanted Circle Theater created several entertaining vignettes featuring key characters from our past that were the highlight of the event. Afterwards, we received many wonderful comments from our guests – it was 'fantastic', 'unique', 'the best they had attended',” said Diane Dukette, Vice President, Development at Cooley Dickinson Hospital.
ECT's site-based history plays are a unique and exciting way to bring the history of any location to life. For more information, contact Rachel.
