Announcing American History Alive! 1-Day Passes

The living history series, American History Alive! Age of Progress is underway as dozens of Compass families met Frederick Douglass last week. A limited number of 1-day passes are available for each upcoming performance. If you cannot come every Wednesday for the entire series or if you are interested in just a few of the characters, register for a One-Day pass! If you have a break in your schedule, and are available on some Wednesdays at 12:00 pm, consider registering for 1-day admission to see:

  • 9/16: Susan B. Anthony
  • 9/23: Mark Twain
  • 9/30: Thomas Edison
  • 10/7: Teddy Roosevelt
  • 10/14: Louise Arner Boyd
  • 10/21: Alexander Graham Bell

One Day passes are $20.00 per person and can be purchased online or at the door. This is the final year of this innovative history program for homeschoolers! Watch for announcements to register for the full and final series American History Alive: The New Century. Second quarter students will meet: Amelia Earhart, Einstein, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, Rosie the Riveter, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Martin Luther King.

Living history actors are the costumed  professionals employed by museums, historical sites, and conferences. They have typically studied their historical character for years and tell their story in first person. Presentations are conversational in style, occasionally involve the audience, and conclude with spontaneous audience Q & A. Watch the historical actors answer 21st century questions in character with period replies! Students younger than third grade (or age 8) must be accompanied by a paying parent or adult.

American History Alive! is held at Compass in Oakton.
