First Ladies, Presidents and Pretzels (6th-8th grade)

Through first person narratives, this program brings to life the stories of the first six First Ladies. Natalee comes dressed as Martha Washington, telling first-hand stories of Martha as well as three other first ladies. She then changes costumes and becomes Dolly Madison, telling stories about herself and three more First Ladies. The program provides opportunity to understand the motivation and accomplishments of these women and to compare and contrast their lives. Understanding how these women contributed to our history and shaped our country gives students a feel for history and a connection to it.

An optional Q&A for students is available at the end of the performance, and requires a planning meeting with the teachers.
