DreamWrights Center for Community Arts to Present THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF AMERICA (ABRIDGED)

Get ready for an exhilarating journey through the annals of American history as DreamWrights Center for Community Arts kick off their 2024: America Season with "THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF AMERICA (abridged)"! From the founding of Jamestown to the rhythm of James Brown, and from the leadership of George Washington to the presidencies of the Bushes, this ninety-minute roller coaster promises to redefine the way you view U.S. history.

The show, described as "What the Daily Show might be like if it were hosted by the Marx Brothers" by the Boston Herald, is a comedic exploration of the firsts and follies that have shaped the nation. Brace yourself for a laughter-filled quagmire as we navigate through the Constitution, conspiracy theories, and everything in between.

As an added bonus, don't miss the "We the People Gallery" featuring sketches of famous figures in U.S. history from 1492-2010. These incredible works were created during DreamWrights' Sketch History Sessions at Mudhook Brewing Co., Marketview Arts, and Collusion Tap Works. Artists were challenged to produce mini masterpieces in just 90 seconds, using three reference images and a Sharpie.

Join in for a night of entertainment at DreamWrights Center for Community Arts with all general seating available for just $16 in advance or $2 more at the door. The gallery and lobby open one hour before the show, and the theatre doors open 30 minutes prior to the performance.
