Atlantic Stage presents 'The Complete History of America'

   
The Atlantic Stage takes the stage to perform "The Complete History of America" for a three-week run, ending on Friday, Aug. 3. A ticket is required for attendance.

"The Complete History of America," co-authored by Adam Long, Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, is billed as "600 years of history in 6,000 seconds." Originally performed by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, the show has been updated to include new material about recent U.S. presidential contenders. Company member Marc McIntyre and Atlantic Stage artistic director Thom Penn will reprise their roles from an earlier production. Mark Jurosko, who just graduated from CCU, is also performing.

Shows run Tuesday through Friday at 7:30 p.m., with the final show on Friday, Aug. 3. Due to the subject matter, children 12 and older are admitted. Tickets range from $17.50 to $27.50.

The Atlantic Stage is the only nonprofit, professional theater in Myrtle Beach. An agreement with CCU allows the company usage of the theatrical facilities at the Myrtle Beach Education Center. The company was formed in 2008 by a group of theatre artists working at Coastal Carolina University and regionally.

Atlantic Stage company member Kris Rau McIntyre will direct the production.

Tickets may be purchased on the Internet at www.atlanticstage.com or by calling the box office at 877-287-8587.
