7:30 pm Dec 14thTheatre Production: The Complete History of America (Abridged) Armstrong Hall
By Adam Long, Austin Tichenor, and Reed Martin Director: Caroline Price Continues Dec. 15-16 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. 600 years of history in 6000 seconds—history will never be the same! From Washington to Watergate, yea verily from the Bering Straits to Baghdad, from New World to New World Order—The Complete History of America (Abridged) is a 90-minute rollercoaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American history, reminding us that it's not the length of your history that matters—it's what you've done with it! Brought to you by the same company that offered a good-natured bash of the Bard in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), this production cheerfully runs riot over our nation’s history. Deploying silly vaudeville sketches, word-association games, puns and crude parodies, nothing is sacred and everything is up for laughs. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors/students/youth, and free for Cornell College faculty, staff, and students with ID. Tickets can be reserved at 319.895.4293 or emailing boxoffice@cornellcollege.edu. **Auditions for this production will be open to the public. Auditions will take place in October. For information on upcoming auditions, please go to the Department of Theatre and Dance website at www.cornellcollege.edu/theatre.
