William Mulholland and The Thirsty City
Teaching students the values of perseverance and conservation
Mulholland and The Thirsty City is a one hour interactive
theatre assembly in which seasoned teaching artists engage the audience
in a living history lesson. Students go back in time to help William
Mulholland overcome the many obstacles he faced in bringing water
nearly 300 miles to the community of early 20th century Los Angeles.
Students then return to modern times and work with the teaching artists to create water usage programs and energy conservation charts that help modern day Los Angeles get through the current drought by conserving water in a variety of efficient ways which also save their families and community money!
The presentation has demonstrated tremendous appeal to all student audiences, and especially those coming from immigrant families.
