"Vote For The Goat" theater show teaches kids about democracy

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Children's Express Theatre puts on a show to educate our future leaders about the power of voting.

Actors put on "Vote For The Goat" this week at Spring Branch-Memorial Library.

The show introduces kids to the idea of democracy at a very young age.

"The reason that we're doing it is, we want to teach kids when they're really young that voting matters," said Tim Fried-Fiori with Children's Express Theatre. "Usually, they don't teach about voting until kids are in high school. By then, it's a harder lesson."
