Spokane Civic Theatre Partners with MAC on Creative Project

The living history program consists of three actresses who role play three women who originally lived in the Campbell House. Grace Campbell, wife of Amasa Campbell and mistress of the home. - Played by Janean Jorgensen Helen Campbell, their daughter. - Played by Whitworth University student Moria Stricker Hulda Olsen, a Swedish immigrant who was one of the family's cooks. - Played by Rebecca Cook
 
For Campbell House Holidays, it is 1910, when Helen was just 18 and when women had just gotten the vote in Washington. The family is getting ready for the party and Hulda has returned to the home to cater the food. When vistitors enter the home, they are transported back in time through the interactions with the women. Helen enjoys talking about "electrics" (cars), while Hulda invites children to help her make cookies. The goal is not to give a history lesson but to give visitors a sense of what life was like a hundred years ago.
