Friends of the Ansonia Library to present one-act play Oct. 15

ANSONIA-From the well-known Betsy Ross and Amelia Earhart to the lesser knowns Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Deborah Sampson, Patty Carver will play them all.

It’s part of her one-act history lesson performance called “This Old Hat—Women of American History” at the Library on 53 South Cliff Street. During it she talks, sings and interacts with the audience while in character.

Carver’s performance is part of the Friends’ Second Annual High Tea Social and Auction fund raiser which will begin Oct. 15 at 1 p.m. Tickets for Carver’s performance are available at $20 for non-members and $15 for members.

There also will be a raffle of table settings, gift cards and other items. Tickets are $1 each or seven for $5.

The proceeds will help defray the Library’s expenses. Earlier this year state and city budgetary cuts threatened to reduce days and hours the library would be open.
