For a festive touch, the Historical Society grounds will be lit up in purple and gold as part of the nationwide Forward into Light campaign to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment.

Justine Goggin was born and raised in Greenwich, where she first fell in love with music after seeing a local production of Annie.
Graduating from Dartmouth College, she began her career in musical theatre, performing in musicals, operas, and cabarets all around NYC, CT, NH, and CT, including Northern Stage, The Lincoln Center Library, Don’t Tell Mama, Opera North, and The Summer Theatre of New Canaan. Justine is co-founder of The Sappho Project, where she proudly serves as Artistic Director. The Sappho Project is a non-profit organization that seeks to bridge the gender gap in musical theatre by supporting women, trans, and gender non-conforming writers.
