You've seen the poster: the bandana, the bicep, the motto "We can do it!" Rosie the Riveter embodied the six million women she represented who went into industrial work while the boys were off fighting World War II, and the shipbuilding industry in Richmond was a major hub of their activity. What better place for Galatean Players to perform Rivets, Kathryn G. McCarty and Mitchell Covington's musical about those women on the home front than on the site of those shipyards, on the decks of the last surviving Victory ship built there? Clay David, who helmed it in two previous versions at ContraCostaCollege and the LesherCenter for the Arts, directs a new edition with six new songs. The run coincides with Fleet Week, and former "Rosies," WWII vets and soldiers in uniform get in for free. October 9 to 26 at the SS Red Oak Victory (1337 Canal Blvd., Berth 6A, Richmond) or 925-676-5705.
