Pollyanna Theatre Company presents The Texas Chili Queens, June 21 – 30 in Rollins Studio Theatre.

Texas history is rich and flavorful, just like the chili made popular by a collection of entrepreneurial women in San Antonio in the 19th century. Set in a modern-day elementary school, a 4th grade descendant of an original Chili Queen competes in a school-wide chili competition. Jumping between the past and present this multi-generational historical story celebrates what everybody can bring to the table.

About Pollyanna Theatre Company

Pollyanna Theatre Company commissions and produces original theatre for young audiences that speaks to the needs, dreams, and imaginations of young people and the child that lives inside each of us. Pollyanna believes that it is possible to create a theatre organization where creativity thrives, where new dramatic literature is created, where general education is supported, where artists find a creative home, and where no child is turned away because of their inability to pay for their ticket.
