Oklahoma Women Speak: A Readers Theatre Play

A fundraiser for OU Carl Albert Center's Women's Leadership Program was held at the Oklahoma History Center Jan 18. It began with a performance of "Oklahoma Women Speak: A Readers Theatre Play" by Pat Jaynes and Avis Rambo. Oklahoma women portrayed included Alice Robertson, Kate Barnard, Kate Biggers, Ruth Darby, Angie Debo, Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher, Hannah Atkins, Clara Luper, Patience Latting, and Wilma Mankiller. In addition we heard from a typical Oklahoma Territory Woman, an Indian Territory woman, a World War II W.A.S.P. pilot and a 1930's & 1940's housewife. Actors included Gladeen Allred-Struthers, Heather Bays, Gloria Burdine, Judy Clay, Joyce Cox, Karen Dean, Recilla Harms, Pat Jaynes, Bernice Mitchell, Katye Perry, Lynda Reynolds, Nelda Sander and Avis Rambo - all of Stillwater, OK. The paly was well performed and wonderfully received. Click on the picture to enlarge.
