Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero
A new play for young audiences commissioned and produced by the Alley Theatre

"The amount of history imparted to the audience in such a short period of time is nothing short of magnificent! Our youngest little fellow in the family is 8 years old, and he really enjoyed the play. What a treat for the audience."
-- Albert Seguin, Founder, The Seguin Family Historical Society

ASK about Texas history -- April 29 to May 17
A Touring Assembly -- Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero
Modern slang and technology bring the Texas revolution
to life in this delightful comic romp.

Seguin: Unsung Texas Hero is a high-paced comical yet thought-provoking 50 minutes of History devoted to an authentic Mexican-American Hero -- Juan Seguin. Follow a Texas history teacher as she magnifies details of the Texas Revolution by insisting on telling the untold story of the brilliant Juan Seguin. Students watch as Juan survives the odds to help topple the Mexican Army and in doing so creates a new nation called Texas.

Seguin’s story is brought to life using references to contemporary events and music. And with exciting fight choreography, the three actors improvise their way through the Grass Fight to the Battle of Concepcion to the Battle of the Alamo as it plays out like a wrestling match.

Appropriate for Grades 3 through 9
