Published on: February 01, 2007Don’t miss “Hamilton, Jefferson and Rittenhouse: A Magnificent Triangle” as Bill Mills performs in this one-man play Wednesday, Feb. 14 at Lone Star College–CyFair.
Mills plays David Rittenhouse in a play that paints a picture of 18th century life in America. He demonstrates how Rittenhouse was torn by the political conflict between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. Capturing the spirit of the Enlightenment, the play shows a man who was an astronomer, surveyor and inventor. Rittenhouse also served as president of the American Philosophical Society and played a key role in colonial abolitionist movement.
This solo show will be performed from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in ART 102, located in the Center for the Arts building on the Barker Cypress campus.
Sponsoring this free community event is Windows on the World, a program designed to support teaching, cultural diversity and lifelong learning to enrich Lone Star College–CyFair as well as the surrounding community.
This play is scheduled in conjunction with several programs related to the “Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America” exhibition on display through Feb. 16 at the Harris County Public Library’s Lone Star College–CyFair Branch, the only Houston library (and one of three Texas libraries) to host this traveling exhibition.
