Past and future On-The-Go! Tour Shows
THE NEW 2019-2020 SEASON OF ON-THE-GO! SCHOOL TOUR PROGRAMS
Petticoats of Steel
By Carolyn Anderson and Jill Rafferty-Weinisch
Directed by Margaret E. Hall
Tour Dates February 24-March 19, 2020
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment – Women’s Right to Vote! This powerful production allows students to experience the battles fought – and ultimately won – for womens suffrage told in the voices of the brave warriors who fought them as well as those who fought – and still are fighting – for civil rights for all. Petticoats of Steel uses primary sources to tell the true stories of the women, specifically those of the State of New York – Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells and Elizabeth Cady Stanton (among others) – and the roles they played in gaining voting rights for all women of the United States of America. Recommended for grades 5 and up

A lot of our students, especially in our area, don’t have this kind of opportunity to see performances and to see professional actors and actresses. The OTG shows fit so well into our curriculum.– Charlie Reyes, Kindergarten Teacher, Schenectady City Schools
