Alley Theatre Sets Public SEGUIN Performance for 10/6
The Alley Theatre's Alley Shows for Kids (ASK) touring show Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero is a high-paced and extremely informative 50-minute play about Juan Seguin, an authentic hero of the Texas Revolution. Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero will have a public performance at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 6, 2012 on the Alley Theatre's Neuhaus Stage.
Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero is a play-within-a-play that follows a Texas history teacher who interrupts a school performance about the Texas Revolution after discovering that the actors know very little about their subject matter. In an effort to educate the actors about unrecognized Texas hero Juan Seguin, the teacher joins the actors in their story's telling. The three quickly improvise their way through the major and minor battles of the Texas Revolution - from the Grass Fight to the Battle of Concepcion. Events soon become status updates as the battle of the Alamo plays out like a wrestling match. The cast of Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero features Autumn Knight, Kalob Martinez and Chris Rivera.
Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero, by Alvaro Saar Rios and directed by Joe Angel Babb, was commissioned by the Alley Theatre. Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero is available for bookings from September 20 to October 5, 2012, and April 29 to May 10, 2013. Recommended for families and students in grades 4 through 10.
