This all-American political satire focuses on the election campaign and Presidency of John P. Wintergreen, whose party, lacking a viable platform, runs on love. With politicians skewered right and left, Of Thee I Sing is an hilarious and timeless send-up of national institutions that is as relevant as ever, (It even features its own impeachment proceedings!). In 1932, this show was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize in drama!

"Of Thee I Sing" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Co-Sponsored by Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution and Richard & Edna Krull
