This interactive theatre experience is ideal for Texas History, U.S. History, or Social Studies classes in grades 4 through 7!


The year is 1926 and two women are running for Texas governor. You’re invited to attend a rally where you’ll meet Edith Wilmans. As the first woman elected to the Texas State Legislature, Edith has a lot to say about politics and women’s suffrage. Learn about the history of women voting in Texas, important issues in the 1920s (many similar to important issues 100 years later), and why political representation matters. Come prepared to share what issues are important to you -- Edith wants to hear them! 



Pollyanna online theatre experiences are eligible to be covered by Creative Learning Initiative funds! Every public school in Austin has access to CLI funding. Please check with your bookkeeper about this today! If you teach at a Title 1 public school, we may be able to find a partial sponsor to supplement the CLI funds. Please email Joy if you’ve already checked with your bookkeeper and discovered that your CLI funds cannot cover this virtual field trip. (Only Title 1 public schools are eligible for partial sponsorships.)
