Join our community of women and celebrate our diverse and vibrant culture that make each of us unique and strong together. On March 16th, at Humanity Boutique, we will showcase a storytelling series by 10 inspiring women in our community. Whether they'll sing a tune, do spoken words or teach us a traditional dance in their culture, we'll hear about their experience growing up in Lowell.
We will also be remembering the life and vision of our beloved friend and entrepeneur, Many (Lee) Pho-Taing of Little Delights Bakery. Store will be open extended hours. 10% of sales will go to the Taing Family.

Studio 506 Theater presents
a reading of
"YOU ON THE MOORS NOW"
written by Jaclyn Backhaus
directed by Kaitlyn Crockett
This hilarious show plucks four classic heroines from their 19th-century novels and into the Moors. When they all receive marriage proposals from the men in their lives, the women decide to band together and escape. What results is a confluence of love, anger, grief, haunting, bloody battles and single tears shed by an ensemble of actors struggling to reconcile the romantic confines of the past with their own contemporary ideas of courtship.
This fundraising event is a presented reading of the script, involving plenty of your faves from past Studio 506 productions.
Jo March ............ Victoria Tham
Lizzie Bennet ..... Miek Perez
Jane Eyre ........... Christa Brown
Cathy ................. Charlette Augusta
Laurie ................. Cam Merullo
Mr. Darcy ........... Tobi Atannon
Rochester .......... Justin Linscott
Heathcliff ........... Ryan Perry
