Bringing history to life

       Brigitta De Pree, with musical help from Benjamin Pratt, acts out “Bowl of Dust,” a story that illustrated the hardships (and occasional humor) of the Great Depression of the ‘30s through the eyes of a young Oklahoma girl growing up in poverty and massive dust storms. The free show, funded by a grant, was at the Old Colorado City Library Oct. 14. De Pree is co-owner of the Manitou Art Theatre, which started its first season this month on the Westside, at 1367 Pecan St. For more information, call 685-4729.
