Mitchell College Players Presents:
Vietnam 101: The War on Campus

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. | www.playscripts.com

Ticket sales are now open!

Vietnam 101: The War on Campus is a documentary theater piece about one college community’s journey during the Vietnam War years. Based on recollections of over 100 students at Oberlin College in Ohio, the play recreates a time when people were asking the same questions that are being asked today about our government and our responsibilities. Combining monologues with Story Theater-type scenes, the play covers the years 1964 to 1970, from Lyndon Johnson’s promise not to expand the war (and early, well-behaved protests) to Kent State (when the entire campus shut down), and finally an epilogue from the present.

“Why Performing Arts at Mitchell? Because it gives me a reason to keep pushing through hard times. It gives me hope and happiness to see smiles when I’m on stage and performing in front of people.”

Michael O’Neil, Senior
