Stronger Than Strong! Great American Tall Tale Heroines

By Brian Guehring

The famous Doctors Wellington have arrived in this small town at the turn of the last century to sell their amazing strength elixir to the population. The Doctors Wellington and their troupe of amazing actors first tell the audience how Dr. J.M. Wellington (in search of ingredients to make the strength elixir) meets a young Tennessee gal who became the rip-roarin’, ‘gater wrasslin’ Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind Crockett. Dr. M.J. Wellington meets Annie Christmas, a young New Orleans girl who became a keelboating legend with the strength to beat up 1,000 men and to haul her keelboat down and up the Mississippi River. Dr. J.J. Wellington gets the final ingredient from the Wild West after meeting the catfish-riding, bronco-busting legendary cowgirl, Slue-Foot Sue. Using ingredients from each of these three heroines, the doctors create an elixir so you, too, can be as strong as these tall tale legends!
