“Starch in the Petticoats” will be performed by Dolores Hydock, a nationally acclaimed storyteller teller and performer, who tells the true stories of five women who were part of the Western Expansion.

The stories are explored through newspapers clippings, historical accounts of their lives, photographs of the women and artifacts of the time.

Johnny Garrett, BHS president said “Starch in their Petticoats” be different from other performances at the WPA Theater.

Of course, for the Old West setting, cowboy hats and boots and garters and starched petticoats will be appropriate attire.

Garrett expressed appreciation to the Alabama Humanities Alliance for its continuing support of the arts, especially in small towns, and to Dolores Hydock for her continuing support of the We Piddle Around Theater.
