Special Veterans Day Performance of Touring Theater of North Carolina’s

Commissioned in 2005 by UNC Greensboro’s Women Veterans Historical Collection, Star-Spangled Girls is a review built from diaries, letters, interviews, telegrams, journals, and posters by and about the women who served the United States during WWII. Directed, adapted and compiled by Founding, Artistic, Producing Director Brenda Schleunes, five actresses portray WAC’s, WAVE’s, Army Nurses, and Red Cross volunteers. The characters based on real women veterans share their memories about enlistment, basic training, service at home and abroad, love, and segregation. Songs from war time are woven throughout the production.

“Five women capably jump in and out of characters as they tell their stories of love and loss, patriotism and discrimination, wild adventure and numbing routine. Their tales are interspersed with song snippets of the era (“Over There” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”).The actors fall in and out of accents – or even male characters – as the differing stories unfold revealing the strength, curiosity and gusto with which they became pioneers in the women’s movement.” Leslie Mizell – Greensboro News & Record
