    Happenings

    radium girls flyerThis week, the PHHS Drama Department brings you RADIUM GIRLS by D.W. Gregory, the terrible but true story of Grace Fryer and the other young girls who worked at the U.S. Radium Corporation and other Radium factories in the USA between 1917-1934.

     

    These girls had no idea they were being poisoned every time they pointed the tip of their brushes with their lips to paint the small numbers on the glow-in-the-dark clock dials. They wouldn't believe their supervisors would lie to them about the possible dangers of the radium paint or that the executives would protect some of the workers with lead screens, but not protect the hundreds of dial painters in the studio. The Radium Girls came to work to earn a living, but ended up fighting for justice.

     

    Come hear and see their stories and see how every day heroes are created.
