Radium Girls opens at Shorewood Nov 8

Saturday, October 20, 2018

Radium was magic: it glowed in the dark, made tumors shrink, and supposedly was a fountain of youth.

In the 1920s, hundreds of young women took jobs painting radium onto doll eyes, house numbers, and -- in the case of Radium Girls -- watch dials. 

As these young women developed mysterious illnesses and died in enormous numbers, nobody wanted to believe that it might be due to this miracle element, even when the dial painters are testifying against their companies on their deathbeds. 

Radium Girls covers the true-to-life story of Grace Fryer, a dial painter fighting for her day in court as she and her coworkers draw closer and closer to death. Will justice be achieved?

Radium Girls will run from Thursday, November 8, through Saturday, November 10, and again the following weekend, Thursday, November 15 through Saturday, November 17 in the Shorewood Theatre. All performance times are from 7pm.

Visit Brown Paper Tickets to reserve your tickets. Advanced ticket prices are $10, and will cost $12 at the door.

The Shorewood Performing Arts Theatre is at Shorewood High School, 17300 Fremont Ave N, Shoreline 98133.
