Vittles for Vets presents and sponsors "The American Soldier" solo show on Wednesday, September 27, 2023 and Thursday, September 28, 2023 starting at 7:30 PM on both nights in the Ballroom of The Highlander Hotel.

"The American Soldier" is a piece of theatre made to honor our Veterans and military families. It's goal is to say, "Thank you!" to our Vietnam Veterans, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans and families of every other conflict America has been part of since the revolution. A play to give those who have no understanding or connection to the military, a better understanding of what service and sacrifices.

It is a powerful one-man show based on letters from Veterans and their families, spanning from the Revolution to our recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The script has been crafted through extensive research and countless interviews with veterans and their family members. It's a profoundly human story that honors our Veterans and their families and deepens our collective understanding of their experiences.

"The American Soldier" uses theatre to foster healing, connection, and community. It reminds us of the enduring strength and resilience of the human spirit and what we all have in common as Americans. It has performed in over 40 cities, including some of the nation's most notable theatres, like The Kennedy Center in 2016 & 2019, The Library of Congress twice, Off-Broadway twice, New York Federal Reserve Bank, and American Legion's National Headquarters, and earned a nominated for an Amnesty International Award and received 4 stars out of 5 at the Edinburgh Festival, Fringe for theatre excellence.

General admission tickets are $45.00 and VIP tickets are $75.00.
