Actor Gary Saderup portrays the life of President Abraham Lincoln in one film, expressing both humor from the frontier and the eloquence of the Civil War years. Following Lincoln from his time as a prairie lawyer, Saderup reveals how the man formed attitudes on life and politics, slavery and war, and peace and reconciliation, and reminds us why Lincoln is the president most revered by Americans today.
The one-man show brings to life the Lincoln of the Lincoln-Douglas debates, the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address, his personal life with Mary Todd, and an American leader’s determination to preserve the Union.
The film screening (125 minutes) will be followed by a panel discussion with Saderup and CLU history professor David Nelson. High school students, budding actors and history buffs are encouraged to attend and learn how Saderup prepared for the role of a lifetime.
Admission is free. Read a Los Angeles Times review of the one-man show.
