Dinner at Felicia's ahead of time was great! Also an excuse to get there early and get free parking across the street.

Description

In the 1920s, The Radium Dial Corporation employed some 4,000 girls and produced watches with brightly lit dials. These were jobs for girls that had never worked before. They didn’t just make money; they made friends. But the radioactive paint they were using made them terribly ill. These Shining Lives tells the story of four women who rejoiced in their new-found camaraderie and found the courage for each other to stand up to the employers that endangered their lives. 

About the Ticket Supplier: Stoneham Theatre

Stoneham Theatre seeks to engage the communities of the Metro North region in the exploration of their common human experience through the production of vital and affecting theatre by established and emerging playwrights, the offering of comprehensive youth education programs and ongoing community outreach initiatives.

Stoneham Theatre is a cultural gathering place dedicated to strengthening community through live theatre and education. Shared stories satisfy a vital human need for connection and link us to a broader world. We produce exceptional professional theatre that invites everyone, whether they have attended theatre in the past or not, to experience this connection in a welcoming, warm environment. In addition, we further the art of live theatre by dedicating a portion of our season to new or rarely performed work. Through our educational programs, we help young people achieve excellence in the performing arts and become engaged and active members of society.
