Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero
Join us for the premier performance of Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero, a new play for young audiences commissioned and produced by the Alley Theatre, on Monday, October 1st, at 2:00 p.m., in the Library meeting room, L-129.
The production is free and it's most appropriate for families and students in grades 4 through 10.
Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero is a high-paced and extremely informative 50-minute play about Juan Seguin, an authentic hero of the Texas Revolution. It's a play within a play in that it follows a Texas history teacher who interrupts a school performance about the Texas Revolution after discovering that the actors know 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 play is written by Alvaro Saar Rios, directed by Joe Angel Babb and features Chris Rivera, Kalob Martinez and Autumn Knight.
