A One-Of-A-Kind Performance Experience:
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of American women's right to vote, this program educates and entertains while recognizing the struggle and sacrifices of the Women's Suffrage Movement's most important figures.
Historical songs take the audience on a journey back in time into the lives of these brave American patriots. Historical images, authentic costuming, an engaging spoken narrative, and audience participation make this a performance experience unlike any other. This is not a typical recital!
The foreshadowing warning of Abigail Adams to the founding fathers that they should "Remember the Ladies"
The role of ladies' fashions within the Movement and the strategies--and scandals--that ensued!
Songs that furthered the Women's Suffrage cause--whether or not this was their composers' original intention!
Frederick Douglass's vital role and contribution to Women's Suffrage at the official beginning of the Movement.
And much more!
Virtual Options Available:
The professional recording of this program is now available as a virtual program. The program still contains all of the historical images, costuming, and narratives as the live version, and is a wonderful and innovative way to learn about the brave heroines and heroes of the Women's Suffrage Movement.
The program is available in a range of durations to fit individual needs.
