Honoring Educational Pioneer and Teacher In Space

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (January 14, 2019) – Weaver Library is proud to present CHALLENGER: Soaring with Christa McAuliffe: A One-Woman Show by Judith Kalaora on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 7pm. This special event honors the life of McAuliffe, an educational pioneer and one of the seven crew members killed in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on January 28, 1986.

Judith Kalaora, who performs as Christa, is the Founder and Artistic Director of History At Play. She has garnered nationwide attention for her one-woman, living history performances, chronicling the lives of legendary women.  Her performances have received accolades from journalists, actors, and historians alike and have earned statewide and national recognition. CHALLENGER: Soaring with Christa McAuliffe was honored by the Massachusetts Senate and House of Representatives, and is produced with the support and approval of both the McAuliffe and Corrigan Families. 

Ms. Kalaora, a Framingham, MA native like Christa, renews McAuliffe’s legacy in this multi-media immersive performance experience, suitable for all ages.  CHALLENGER remembers the United States Teacher in Space Program, which launched over thirty years ago, while inviting audiences to discover the true story behind the incredible teacher.

Free and open to all, this program has been made possible by the Friends of the East Providence Public Library.
