“An underground theatrical coup. . . A triumph of style and stagecraft” - Time Out New York

One of the most exciting and experimental troupes around, the National Theater of the United State of America presents Chatauqua!, inspired by the Chatauqua Circuit, a wildly popular travelling lecture series, that flourished from 1874 to the Great Depression, where scholars, scientists, magicians, jugglers, and dancers gathered in circus tents across the country to educate and entertain the common man.

Chatauqua! brings this American tradition into the 21st Century, straddling high and low culture as it weaves lectures on history, culture and capitalism with live music, magic, slapstick, and dance.

Each night’s Chatauqua! features special guest lecturers from our community.

The speakers for each performance are as follows:

January 13 at 7:30 p.m. - Gustavo Arellano, OC Weekly reporter and Ask A Mexican! author
January 14 at 2 p.m. - Erwin Chemerinsky, Founding Dean of the University of California, Irvine School of Law
January 14 at 7:30 p.m. - Jim Washburn, arts and music writer and historian
January 15 at 3 p.m. - Shelley Hoss, President of the Orange County Community Foundation

Running time (approximate): 1 hour and 20 minutes with no intermission
