Critically-Acclaimed Apprentice Program is Ready to Rock

FORT WORTH, TEXAS - Casa Mañana's 2017 Apprentice Program is excited to present Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, August 4-6, 2017. Tickets are on sale now.

An exhilarating and riotous look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson reinvents the life of our seventh president. Created by Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson begins with the President's early days as a child on the wild frontier and follows his steady climb from military strategist to populist rabble-rouser to President of the United States. With a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and an infectious score, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson encourages audience participation and rocking out. It's a night about politics you actually won't want to miss! This show is suitable for ages 13 and over.

The all-student Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson cast will be led by Apprentice Program veterans Charlie H. Ray as "Andrew Jackson", Brooke Verbois as "Rachel" and Hayden Hart as "Bandleader." Additional cast members include: Shelby Parker, Lauren Magee, Lauren Davidsen, Camryn Wright, Alejandro Saucedo, Ashton Miramontes, Brandon Shreve, Sydney Dotson, Daniel DiPinto, Tatem Lee, Brad Weatherford, Lance Jewett, Caleb A. Barnett, Katie Blanton, Sarah Youngblood, Grace Moore, Josie Dawn, Tristin Thomas and Hunter Hall.
