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!

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

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