March First Friday Social

Members of the Custom House Maritime Museum and their guests are cordially invited to our First Friday Social on March 1st, 2019 from  6:00-8:00 pm, for our collaborative program with the Actors Studio of Newburyport -- of a city-wide celebration of Woman's Herstory Month.

For this unique First Friday event we proudly present the premiere of Captains, Wives, and Daughters, a short play of Newburyport in 1877. Captain William Graves has been laid to rest. When Captain Stephen Bray’s daughter joins the Graves women for a holiday dinner, resentments are stirred, and more than their silence is broken.

Playwright: Adair Rowland. Director: Kathleen Isbell Cast: Maureen Daley, Sally Nutt, Allegra Larsen, Shannon Muhs. Costumes: Carla Crombie.

Don't miss this premiere performance of Captains, Wives, and Daughters.

Come and enjoy a variety of wines generously provided by New England Wine and Spirits -- along with fine craft beers from Newburyport Brewery -- the official beer of the Custom House Maritime Museum! Appetizers will be served.

Please, remember to bring your membership card with you!
