Living history show

Effingham Memorial Suzette Brumleve Public Library partners with the Effingham County Museum to offer a living history performance of Beatrix Potter on Tuesday, September 27 at 6 p.m. at the Effingham County Museum.

Born Helen Beatrix Potter on July 28, 1866, Beatrix Potter is one of the most beloved children’s authors and illustrators. Besides Peter Rabbit and his friends, she produced and protected plush toys, developed board games, coloring pages and wallpaper; and his drawings of mushrooms are still used in instructional and identification texts. She did not hesitate to circumvent the obstacles to women in work and science, which prevailed at the time.

Potter will be performed by Debra Ann Miller, a professional actress, singer and voice-over artist with over 30 years of experience as a performer for audiences, television and film. She has balanced her career between commercial and educational theater since graduating from Michigan State University’s Department of Theater in 1985 and has traveled the country with such prestigious children’s theater companies as Artreach, now the Children’s Theater of Cincinnati, and Child’s Play Touring Theater. Since 1997, she has traveled the country with Michael Krebs of With Lincoln Production as Mary Todd Lincoln in Visiting the Lincolns.
