WHO:

This show works best for groups of 8 to 30 students. This play is created especially with 4th-grade Texas History students in mind. Grades 3-7 can also book the show (we’ll adjust for different ages) since themes of voting rights, elections, and civic engagement are for EVERYONE! Please send this webpage URL to homeroom and Texas History teachers, Librarians, and School Administrators. Thank you.

 

WHAT:

Bring this interactive play with voting rights themes to your classroom or school library in the 2024 election year! This story was inspired by a real Texan who left her mark on political history, and it playfully encourages your students to explore and discuss women's suffrage, civic engagement and other hot topics of the 1920s that still resonate today.

WHEN:

Weekdays during school hours in September 2024. Let us know what fits your class schedule.

WHERE:

This compact play comes to you live right in your classroom or school library: two actors and two duffle bags.
Students get to travel back in time without leaving campus — it’s a field trip without the trip.

WHY:

  • This interactive event encourages creative thinking, promotes empathy, and creates a memorable bonding experience for students. 

  • Live theatre is PLAY and play activates learning!

  • Robust study guide includes TEKS learning standards. The optional lessons and activities it contains can fill a week's worth of classes!

HOW LONG:

The program is 50 minutes long to fit into a class period. We can present 2 shows/day.
