Young Audiences of Houston Presents:
The Story Of The Lone Star State

This original production by Houston’s award-winning iAct Houston takes a bite out of Texas history.

Beginning with the Native Peoples of the Gulf Coast through the adventures of NASA’s astronauts, six hundred years of Texas tales are told in an hour. Audiences will learn about the folklore of the Karankawa & Caddo tribes, Spanish exploration, Hispanic heritage, and the many cultures and peoples that have shaped our state.

Four actors play over 50 different roles, bringing to life such colorful characters as Cabeza De Vaca, Santa Anna, and Sam Houston’s trusted friend Deaf Smith. Students not only experience a fantastic performance – they become part of history.

InterActive Theater Company offers a unique style of theater in allowing students to participate in the performance – through volunteering to come on stage, answering questions or offering suggestions to the actors. Teachers and educators will find their Texas history curriculum enhanced by this production that is at once educational and entertaining. So saddle up for the ride of your life – 600 years in 60 minutes…and don’t worry, we’ll remember the Alamo!!
