Artists Ensemble’s “Julie & Jane” Highlights the Lifelong Friendship and Accomplishments of Two Rockford Area Women

The Lives of Julia Lathrop and Jane Addams

The Artists Ensemble presents the story of Rockford University alumni and social reformers Julia Lathrop, LWVGR and LWVIL founder, and Jane Addams, Nobel Peace Prize recipient, at Cheek Theater at Rockford University on March 7-24 2pm, 4pm, and 7:30pm. The play, written by Margaret Raether, is inspired by a 1935 posthumous biography Ms. Addams wrote, My Friend, Julia Lathrop. The play was requested as a commemoration for the Centennial Celebration of the League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford founding in 1922.
