adventure stage chicago presents theatre unspeakable
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
critical history lesson in 50 minutes! Seven actors—suspended on a
platform two feet off the ground—share 21 square feet of space to
recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to
Yorktown. Using only the actors’ bodies, voices and (pantomimed)
cannons, the show evokes an epic time period in American history.
Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American
Revolution displays the company’s rowdy brand of bare-boned and
imaginative physical theater in its first ever extended run in Chicago.
ADVENTURE STAGE CHICAGO creates and tells heroic stories about young people. We do this to engage our community and inspire all of us to be heroes in our own lives.
We believe the world needs more everyday heroes, and we invite you to be a hero with us. Welcome to Adventure Stage!
