Programs in Development: Ladies and the Law

Ladies and the Law

Long before the first women patrolled the streets in cars, their early sisters of the law, worked in a different world but often achieved the same end results.  They carried the badge, kept the law, helped those in need, and built the safety of the community.  One woman, offered a badge, a gun and a billy club, turned them down as being 'beneath the dignity of a woman.'  Others, were unafraid to point a weapon at a deadly criminal and enforce the law.  Many served to protect the innocent and bring civilization into the wildest forgotten corners of city crime.

In development now...

BIG, BOLD AND BAWDY






She was one of Oklahoma City’s first female entrepreneurs! She was a “Shady Lady” with a nose for business and soon had control of a lot of businesses and their owners!

Known as ‘Big Annie Wynn” and “Annie Bailey” she arrived with the 1889 Land Run and left sometime in 1910 seeking, they said, the temperate climate of California. In between was corruption, temptation, supply-and-demand, and maybe even murder.

Marilyn A. Hudson dramatically presents a solo performance of true stories, in costume, of this fascinating and reviled, early citizen in ‘BIG ANNIE’ TAKES A TOWN.

Ah, technology!   As soon as I master adding sound and story snippets, I will do another one. Till then, however, here are some scenes of storytelling events where I have shared stories, added historic presence via costume, or a combination of both!  Maybe I should model for a "Storyteller" action figure????? LOL!
