Huntingdon Offers One-Night Performance of Acclaimed Birmingham Play

Montgomery, Ala.—Huntingdon College will offer a one-night-only performance of the acclaimed play, “Bully! An Adventure with Teddy Roosevelt,” Tuesday, February 16, at 7:00 p.m. in the College’s Ligon Chapel, Flowers Hall. The performance, starring Alan Gardner of City Equity Theatre (Birmingham), is free and open to the public.

Directed by Alan Litsey and written by Jerome Alden, the play is a one-man portrait of the political maverick who served as the nation’s 26th president. The play chronicles Roosevelt’s beginnings in an aristocratic family, the forces that drove him to become a populist, and his experiences as a cowboy, New York City police commissioner, colonel of the Rough Riders, secretary of the Navy, reformer, naturalist, conservationist, husband, father, author of more than 50 books, and vice president and president of the United States. The play enjoyed a successful seven-performance run at the Virginia Samford Theatre, Birmingham, in November, and received a four-star review from Alec Harvey of the Birmingham News, who wrote, “Gardner makes a fine Teddy Roosevelt. [...] If Roosevelt wasn’t like this, we certainly think he should have been.”

Huntingdon College, grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, is committed to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom, and service and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world. Founded in 1854, Huntingdon is a coeducational liberal arts college.
