Thirst 'n' Howl Musical Productions offers a one hour story concert of original songs presenting the Rosie the Riveter experiences of worklife and homelife. Challenges of working outside of the home for the first time, rationing, housing, spies and riveting airplanes at the Glenn L. Martin Company in Middle River, MD  are featured in 1940's style songs as your audience assists the cast in setting the scene for the 1940's era program. This presentation which premiered in 1996 offers an opportunity for organizations to rally Rosies in their communities and honor them with an evening of bringing their history to life while paying tribute to them for their contributions and accomplishments during the war years.  The YouTube Channel for Thirst 'n' Howl Musical Productions offers 3 previews of the presentation.  Contact: tnhedutainment@aol.com
