  • Plan your Gift Certificates and participation for Afternoon Tea and Personalities

Our regular, casual, fun, Afternoon Tea is a meal with sandwiches, scones, dessert and tea. Light Tea performances are served with scones, toppings and tea. Holiday Afternoon Tea serves up a festive tea menu, ambiance, and performance to remember. Consider this as an enriching afternoon with friends. Summer Teas (June and July) are sponsored by Irene's Teas.

Take a SurveyWe are approaching five years, performing various women who challenged and changed history. Currently we have a repertoire of 16 personalities. Going forward we would like to hear from you. Please take about 5 - 10 minutes to share your thoughts on an anonymous survey to help in our planning. We appreciate your willingness and involvement as we continue to grow and serve. Click Here to begin survey. Thank you.

All performances are in authentic first person, in costume, Chautauqua style. Discussions can be held after the performance both in character and as a scholar out-of-character. Educational and valuable opportunity for corporate office programs, organizational meetings with discussions, public and private venues, educational facilities to experience and learn authentic historical persons.
Perfect opportunity for High School and College classes in history, social sciences, aviation, and psychology.
