The West Bloomfield High School Theatre Arts program will be putting on its fall production of the play “Radium Girls” beginning on Nov. 1 in the West Bloomfield High School Auditorium.
The musical will be performed beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 1, Nov. 2, and Nov. 3.
According to the school’s theatre arts website, “Radium Girls” is a dramatic comedy that tells the story of a woman’s pursuit of social justice in the face of ruthless industrialists who opt to protect company profits over the health of their workers.
The play was written by D.W. Gregory, who based the story on real events that took place in the 1920s involving the U.S. Radium Corporation and its facilities that led to break-throughs for the American labor movement.
The role of Grace Fryer will be played by Bailey Kadian, while Kathryn will be played by Lauren Sallen.
Irene will be played by Erin Ben-Moche, while Mrs. Alma Macneil will be played by Catherine Hug.
Brian Baylor will play the role of U.S. Radium Corporation President Arthur Roeder, and Max Vinogradov will play Von Sochocky, the company’s founder.
