Hello & thanks for looking! I'm Rita Parisi, a performing artist based out of Massachusetts. Since 2005, my original one-woman programs have been presented to libraries in New England, New York, New Jersey, and more recently, on the west coast of Florida. I will be touring Florida in February & March 2022 with the following three programs (Victorian Courtship Tea, Women of '76 & I am Zelda, one-act play about Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald) All three of these are appropriate for libraries.


Victorian Courtship Tea: Mrs. Gordon, a middle-class woman from 1908 has invited you, the audience, to afternoon tea. She will share with you courtship rituals and how her husband courted her in the 1890s. This is an interactive performance where the audience can ask questions of Mrs. Gordon and share their own stories of courtship and dating. Perfect for February. Recommended for ages 8+.

Women of '76: Meet five women, loyalist and patriot, American and foreign-born who witnessed and in some cases changed the course of the American Revolution. Great for March, Women's History Month. Recommended for ages 8+.

I am Zelda, a one-act play about Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald: Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald was the glittering half of the Golden Couple of the 1920s and muse and inspiration for the flapper characters in Fitzgerald's Jazz Age stories. Though a legend in her own time, she was much more than her public image. This original play will pay tribute to an often misunderstood woman; a woman who battled schizophrenia for much of her life; a woman who was also a mother, an accomplished ballet dancer, an exhibited artist, and a published writer.

Recommended for ages 13+.

Program Length: 50-75 minutes + Q&A
Cost: $400-$650 including travel
