From Washington to Watergate, from the Bering Straits to Baghdad, from New World to New World Order – The Complete History of America (abridged) is a 90-minute roller coaster ride through the quagmire that is American History. Directed by Professor John Spiegel, the show tackles such controversial questions like who really discovered America?  Why did Abe Lincoln free the slaves? How many politicians does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Performances are Thursday through Saturday, April 11 – 13 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, April 14 at 2 pm in the Swanson Center Main Stage Theater. General Admission tickets are $10, while Piedmont faculty, students, and staff can attend for free. For tickets, call the box office at (706)778-8500 ext. 1355 or tap/click here.
