First Impressions

“Remember the ladies”


First Impressions presents historical theatrical narratives depicting notable women of history. Presenting history in an entertaining, yet accurate manner.

Jessica Michna, recipient of the Presidential Service Center’s Distinguished Service Award, is widely known for her riveting portrayals of First Ladies, notable women of history and fictitious characters. She has entertained groups throughout America including guests from as far away as New Zealand, Japan and Brazil. Audiences ranging from young children to senior citizens have been equally enthralled. She has appeared before historical societies, schools, libraries, living history museums, senior centers, churches, and has been guest hostess at parties and weddings.
Mrs. Michna’s performances are compelling and emotionally enthralling. Audiences laugh along with her humorous anecdotes. They share in her tears as she relates how the horrors of war have impacted families. She has a powerful effect on an audience.

The usual presentation runs approximately one hour. The program can be shortened or lengthened to meet specific needs. Two act versions for community theatre can also be provided. Jessica is always open to questions after the program. Performance fees are very reasonable, based on the length of program and distance traveled.
