A parody of "Hamilton", "Jeb!" follows the doomed presidential campaign of John Ellis Bush. Written collaboratively by Anna Abraham, Maitreyi Anantharaman, Emma Bilbrey, Alex Cohen, Zach Cohen, Rachel Cohn, Sam Daitzman, Katie DeWitt, Alejandro Espinosa, Cassidy Hill, Luke Hoban, Molly Lippitt, Andreia Matos, Sophia Morales, Bridget Mountford, Caylene Parrish, Ariel Sauri, Hannah Schmitt, Sam Sledzieski, Rebecca Tarnopol, and others, this show is itself a true embodiment of Jeb!'s campaign: Vulture called it "not as good as Lin-Manuel Miranda's work" and the Washington Post asked "Could any idea sound less funny...?".

Admission is free on a first come-first served basis. Performances are Satruday, April 15th at 8pm and Sunday, April 16th at 2pm.

From the director that brought you "Julius Caesar" and "La Miserable" comes this season's smash musical: "Jeb! an American Disappointment: a parody: a staged reading". The show, "written collaboratively by a bunch of millennials who have too much free time on their hands" is a parody of "Hamilton" and chronicles the rise and fall of Jeb!'s failed 2016 presidential bid.

Auditions will be held in the Risley TVR. Please prepare a verse and a chorus of a song and a 60 second mono...logue on why, in your opinion, Jeb! lost. Please contact Christian Brickhouse at with any questions.
