The Bitterroot Performing Arts Series is starting off this season with laughter.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is best known for their hilarious three-man play, "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)," which is still popular after opening in 1981.

However, they have turned their twisted brains to American History, with a similar fast-paced comedy that even has current events covered.

"The Complete History of America (Abridged) - Election Edition" is to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting audience Friday, September 16 at the Hamilton High School Performing Arts Center.

With a vaudeville-style presentation, the crew will cover hundreds of years in 90 minutes, with a little time left over for this year's presidential election.

Tickets are still available at the Bitterroot Performing Arts box office on Main in Hamilton. Call (406) 363-7946.

Next month, "Diavolo - Architecture in Motion" will dance across the PAC stage October 15th.
