Waldorf College Theatre Company to Present The Complete History of America (Abridged)

The Waldorf Theatre Company will present the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s production of The Complete History of America (Abridged) on July 14th and 15th at 7:00PM, July 17th at 7:30PM, and July 18th at 4:00PM in Smith Theatre.

The production covers 600 years of history in 6000 seconds, touching on everything from Washington to Watergate. According to the authors, it is a “90-minute roller coaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American History.”

The Waldorf Theatre Company tackles such controversial questions as: Who really discovered America? Why did Abe Lincoln free the slaves? How many Democrats does it take to screw in a light bulb? History is normally written by the winners, and now it’s the Waldorf Theatre Company’s turn!

The production features Business major Emily Anderson, Musical Theatre & Playwriting major Philip Detrick, and Theatre Performance major Kelsey Sollish.  Incoming freshman Allie Baker is the Assistant Stage Manager and understudy, Theatre & Communications major Abbie Wells is the crew, and the production is directed, designed, and stage-managed by Theatre assistant professor Dr. David S. Sollish.

Tickets are $6.00 general admission seating and can be reserved by contacting Dr. David S. Sollish at david.sollish@waldorf.edu<mailto:david.sollish@waldorf.edu> or (641) 585-8287. Proceeds go to the Waldorf Theatre Company’s 2015 Spring Tour.
