These Shining Lives, written by Melanie Marnich, is based on the true story of four women who worked for the Radium Dial Company – a watch factory based in Ottawa, Illinois. It tells the moving story of 4 extraordinary women as they develop a strong bond of friendship while they work in a factory where they paint watches with radium powder without knowing that the work is so dangerous it will kill them. The play highlights the courageous women who choose not to be victims but to fight for justice as well as their very survival. Set in a time before workers’ safety held little concern for employers. The Radium Dial Company is one of the most egregious examples of a company that disregards all warnings and studies that show the work as highly toxic and dangerous for the women who paint their watches and made them rich. Melanie Marnichs’s moving play is an exploration of industrial neglect and an uplifting tribute to the courage and strength of the radium girls and the resilience of the human spirit.
Woodinville Rep is a 501(c) (3) organization operation in Woodinville, WA for the last 25 years.
The Woodinville Repertory Theatre is dedicated to enriching the cultural life of our community by creating high quality theatre featuring diverse voices and stories that inspire our audience.
Who We Are
The Woodinville Repertory Theatre was founded in 1998 by the late Peg Phillips, best known as Ruth-Ann Miller on the TV series “Northern Exposure.” Peg’s dream was to bring quality live theatre that would appeal to audiences from across the Puget Sound region.
At Woodinville Repertory Theatre, we believe that racism and all forms of discrimination have no place in our society. We recognize that systemic racism has permeated every aspect of our culture and has caused deep harm to communities of color. We are committed to actively challenging and dismantling racism in all its forms, both within our organization and in the broader community.
As a theater company, we recognize that storytelling is a powerful tool for promoting empathy, understanding, and social change. We strive to use our platform to amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) artists, and to actively seek out and produce works that reflect diverse experiences and perspectives.
We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all members of our community, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or ability. We will actively work to build a community that celebrates diversity, fosters understanding, and promotes justice.
We recognize that this work is ongoing and that we must continually educate ourselves and our audience on issues of racial justice. We invite open and honest dialogue and commit to actively listening to and learning from the experiences of BIPOC individuals and communities.
Together, we can build a more equitable and just society that celebrates the richness of human diversity.
