The story of Jennie B. Powers and the work of humane societies in the early 20th century will now be the subject of a short documentary, set to be released March 13, 2022. Keene’s Emmy-award winning production company, SALT Project, is collaborating with the Historical Society of Cheshire County to transform Jenna Carroll’s NH Humanities-to-Go program The Woman Who Dares into a short film. Historical Society archival materials and photographs, along with shadow puppets designed by Stringpullers Puppet Company of New York, combine to bring Powers’ story to life.
The public is invited to the premiere of the documentary, Jennie B. Powers: The Woman Who Dares, on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 4pm at the Colonial Theatre’s Showroom. SALT Project president Eliazbeth Myer Boulton and Historical Society director of education Jennifer Carroll will speak following the film.
This production was made possible thanks to the support of New Hampshire Humanities, the Putnam Foundation, the Kingsbury Fund, and Arts Alive. Admission is $5. Tickets may be purchased through the Colonial Theatre’s website. Please note The Colonial’s COVID-19 guidelines, which can also be viewed on their website: https://tickets.thecolonial.org/.
