Meet Jack Langrishe and Marietta Ravel, late 19th century performers eager to usher you back in time to see Colorado history as you never have before! Pulled from the pulp of the newspapers of the time, this sharp, fun slice of showmanship highlights stories of con man Soapy Smith, socialite Molly Brown, and cyclist Dora Rinehart to create a living, breathing portrait of our state when it was still cutting its teeth.
Curriculum Connections: Colorado history, social studies, geography, lawlessness, surviving nature’s challenges, the changing roles of women, social hierarchy
