The Shows
Clara Barton The Courage of Angels
She was a timid, grgile young girl, who would never speak up for herself But when she saw other human beings in needs, Clara Barton became fearless. She spoke up for others in her greatest battle- to create the American Red Cross. The program is presented in a lecture, while Clara relives her adventures in the Civil War, and urges the United States to support the Geneva Convention.

I lift My Lamp
This two-character production is based on true stories of English, African, Irish, German, Norwegian, Russian, Mexican, Japanese and Italian immigrants coming to America. Filled with tales if heartache and humor, it is a celebration of our differences and our common bonds. This play was first produced with the American Living History Theatre through a grant from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.

Victoria!
Who was the first woman to open a brokerage on Wall Street? the first woman to run for president of the United States? Publisher of the Communist Manifesto in the US? Victoria's shady past included carnival show "spiritual readings", where she and her sister Tennessee may have become too familiar with the customers. But once they met Cornelius Vanderbilt (who hired them to call the spirit of his dead wife), their fabulous careers began to soar.

Failure Is Impossible, Susan B. Anthony
"Failure is impossible" was her motto, event though she died in 1906, fourteen years before women gained the right to vote. Using actual events and speeches, the play covers Susan B. Anthony's transformation from schoolteacher to temperance worker to abolitionist to suffragette adn organizer for the Women's Rights Movement.

The Goldrush Tails
The old miner invites us into his cabin to listen to the "Story of the Old Ram", but somehow gets sidetracked, and instead tells a few yarns adapted from Mark Twain, Bret Harte and Jack Londin. This humorous program was originally commissioned by the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum for their Gold exhibit.

Louisa May
Watching her mother go begging for food and clothing while her father lectured on his peculiar brand of philosophy, young Louisa May Alcott resolved to provide for her family as "duty's faithful child". Her best-beloved novel, LITTLE WOMEN, was autobiographical- only her father didn't go to war, Louisa did.

JANE AUSTEN
Have a delightful tea party with English Author Jane Austen and her favorite brother Henry, as they gossip about their neighbors and read selections from Jane's modest works, like PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, or EMMA.

SILLY SHAKESPEARE
A lively, modern, irreverant and all-out hilarious hour with Othello, Romeo, Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra like you've never seen them before. Perfect for your school or special group occasion.
