RSU Theatre Presents “Hillary & Clinton”

Poster art for Hillary and ClintonThe Rogers State University Theatre program will present “Hillary and Clinton,” an original staged reading, on Thursday, Oct. 6, and Friday, Oct. 7.

“Hillary and Clinton” will be held at 7:07 p.m. each night in the Baird Hall Performance Studio. The 90-minute play will be held without intermission.

The play takes place in an alternate universe light years away from our own on a planet called Earth. It looks a lot like our Earth, except it’s slightly different. Living on this other earth is a woman named Hillary, who is trying to become the president of a country called the United States of America.

It’s 2008 and she’s campaigning in a state called Iowa and she’s not doing very well in the polls. She needs more money to keep the campaign going, so she calls her husband for help. He offers her a deal, a tough deal, but when she gets his help, she gets more than she bargained for in this play the Chicago Tribune calls “an audacious, whip-smart, highly entertaining piece of writing.”

The cast includes Kessiah Neff, a 2016 RSU graduate of Claremore, as Hillary; Cody Carroll, a communications senior from Claremore, as Bill; and RSU Theatre program director David Blakely as Mark. Marcus Young, a communications senior from Claremore, will serve as the stage director.

Each performance also will feature a voter registration drive. Attendees who register at the event may see the play free of charge. Tickets are $12 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $3 for students, staff and faculty with RSU ID.
