Honoring National Women's Month
Rosie the Riveter
Women and the War Effort
Beginning in 1942, as an increasing number of American men were recruited for the World War II battlefields, women were asked to fill factory positions.  Rosie the Riveter was part of an international campaign and became a symbol of the independence of women and an integral part of the workforce.  In fact, prior to becoming Queen, Princess Elizabeth served as an auto mechanic.
Speaker Kristina Melsheimer and President Berto shared a proper cup of tea!
Righetti grad Kristina Melsheimer earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, graduating summa cum laude, from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.  At NYU she studied with the Experimental Wing, the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, and the International Theatre Workshop (ITW) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.  While at ITW she was invited to present her honors paper, Shakespeare and Montaigne:  On the ‘Nature of Cannibals’, as part of the NYU All Department Drama Festival
When not involved in theater, Kristina enjoys board games, novels, and playing piano. She has also been brushing up on her Spanish to better connect with her family in Chile.
​In the nearly two years she has been with the PCPA, Kristina has served as the Directing Intern and now serves as the Outreach/Youth Education Coordinator.  During the 2021 season, she was an Assistant Director of Mother Road and the Assistant Director/Assistant Choreographer for The Secret Garden , Into the Woods, and The Sound of Music.
Currently, Kristina is playing English author Jane Austen in the one-woman show, Meet Jane Austen, a touring performance that brings the famed authoress right into classrooms.
