You have two problems: finding someone who has the software, and finding a way of running it on modern Mac hardware. It's likely that it's written for Classic Mac OS, not even early OS X, whose PPC apps won't run on Intel Macs from MacOS Lion (2011) onwards.
You can use an app called "Sheepshaver" to emulate the old Classic Mac interface: though it's a bit difficult to install, as you have to assemble Boot ROMs (technically still under Apple's copyright) from old machines, and configure the complex setup.
I'm presuming you have old files in this format that you need to print?
The group https://groups.io/g/wordperfectmac has two free Sheepshaver installs. Both are complete packages, ready to run. One, "WPMacApp", needs MacOS 10.10; the other, "SheepShaver-WP", needs 10.4. Both include a copy of the WordPerfect word processor, but you can ignore or delete that.
