“What a way to make a living!”

Our spring musical takes us back to 1979 and to the corporate workplace with Violet, Judy and Doralee as they live out their wildest fantasy: giving their boss the boot! Nominated for four Tony Awards and based on the 1980 movie of the same name, the comedy is full of hum-making music and plenty of laughs as the women turn the tables on their obnoxious and chauvinistic boss.

Director Margaret Hall says the play shows just how far women in the workplace have come since 1979. “Those of us who were working at that time, really did experience such circumstances,” said Margaret. “In a very humorous way, the story sends a message of the importance of taking control of your own life.”

Thursdays - Saturdays May 21*-23, and 28-30 at 7:30 p.m.

American Camp Parade Ground

Catch up with the latest interior restoration during an American Camp Officers’ Quarters Open House.

Maintenance worker, David Harsh, who doubles as the park’s historic buildings restoration specialist, has spent the winter months applying finishes to the interior rooms of the Officers’ Quarters’, officially known as Historic Structure 11 (HS-11). The building was erected at Fort Bellingham in 1856 and transported to San Juan Island during the Pig War crisis of 1859. It is largely acknowledged as the oldest house on the island.

Unlike most of the buildings that were auctioned off and moved elsewhere on the island when the post closed in 1874, HS-11 remained as a living quarters for former Hudson’s Bay Company agent Robert Firth. The Firths and the families that followed remodeled the building in such a way that many of the house’s original features remained under layers of additional rooms, wallpapers and wall board.

For more information about the house or for accessibility information, call park historian Mike Vouri at 360-378-2240, ext. 227 or e-mail him at mike_vouri@nps.gov.
