Play-reading Workshop for We Did It for You!
Here is a creative, innovative, and experiential program for your organization or classroom. Ideal for study groups and college history courses in feminist studies. Works well at conventions and conferences as well. Engage your members or students by doing a play reading of We Did It For You! This is a great way to put on the play but not deal with the time and expense to learn the whole thing and stage it. Participants will receive a workbook to help them continue their growth in cultural awareness after the workshop.
In a 3-hour intense workshop, you and your colleagues will:
- Delve into the script without the effort, trouble and expense of memorization and staging
- Choose which era you would like to be from (there are 22 characters)
- Learn first-hand what these amazing women in history went through to fight for our rights
- Be able to hear what they said, read what they wrote and learn how they stood up for change
- Have fun singing along to the songs
You’ll come away from the experience uplifted, more educated about women’s contributions, and with a greater appreciation of the precious rights we have and a keener awareness of how easily we can lose them. This history is affecting our lives today -- and the decisions our politicians are making for us. Participants receive a workbook which includes a timeline of women's history plus thought-provoking topics for journaling on after the workshop.
“This is a fabulous program. The active participation of everyone in the reading was not only fun but gave a wonderful group spirit to the event.”
