Christmas at Balmoral Castle

Monday, December 21, at 7:00 p.m., Waukesha Public Library

Jessica Michna portrays Margaret Cummins, Head Housekeeper of Balmoral Castle during the reign of Queen Victoria, as she prepares for the arrival of the royal couple and their nine children in the late 1800s. Join these festivities on Monday, December 21, at 7:00 p.m. at Waukesha Public Library. Margaret served the royal family for 78 years, working her way up from the scullery to a position of trust and management. She was a personal confidant of the Queen, very rare in class conscious Victorian England.

Michna is widely known for her riveting and compelling portrayals of historical women, among them Eleanor Roosevelt, Abigail Adams and Helen Keller. She has entertained audiences throughout the US, Japan and Brazil. She has also performed at numerous venues including the Lincoln Boyhood Home, the Churchill Memorial Chapel, the National Railroad Museum and the Wisconsin State Historical Museum.
