This fast and funny show is designed to have a good time with our national story, putting an irreverant and entertaining spin on America's past while still dropping in a ton of information for you and your students to talk about long after the show is over.

In one breathless hour, we'll take your students from the very beginnings of western civilization up to the modern day. The style of the show is going to be familiar to anyone who knows Chicago-style improv, with a cast of six playing dozens of characters, and a pace that keeps the audience's heads racing.

Your kids will come face to face with Columbus, the Pilgrims, Jefferson, Adams, Washington, the creation of the Constitution (yeah, about that 3/5's of a person part....), the Industrial Revolution, the Missouri compromisers, the gold rush (and Levi Strauss, who figured out there was more gold in other prospectors than in them thar hills), & the Civil War - and that's just the first half of the show!

This is one of our most popular shows, offering smart fun for students in grades 4-8. Available for touring year-round!
