The Streator Drama Mamas will be performing two different shows in celebration of Women’s History Month.
Members of the Readers’ Theatre Ensemble are performing "Ages & Stages" and "Give Them the Vote!"

Meanwhile, the public has several opportunities to see "Give Them the Vote! The History of Women’s Suffrage" about the passage of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. It’s a story of dogged determination and perseverance.
