'American Soldier'
set for Nov. 16
WOODSTOCK — Nov. 16, The American Soldier comes to the Loos Center for the Arts. This powerful one-man performance based on true stories “pays tribute to the bravery and sacrifices of our military veterans — from the Revolution to our recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Sponsored by the Putnam Area Foundation and Performing Arts of Northeast Connecticut, the show is open to the community at a 7 p.m. performance. Educational performances at 9 and 11 a.m. for local schools are free of charge.  Tickets for the 7 p.m. show cost $15. Two free tickets are available for veterans and active duty service members.

An extensively researched script is based on letters and interviews “that bring to life our soldiers’ struggles at war and their internal struggles to come back home.”
The 85-minute performance stars Douglas Taurel, who portrays 14 veterans and their family members, telling their stories of courage and sacrifice. “The American Soldier is not a political story but a profoundly human story that strives to honor our veterans and military families for their service to our country.” The critically acclaimed show described as “raw and emotional” has been performed in over 40 cities and 25 states, including venues such as The Kennedy Center and Off-Broadway.  “It is a journey through the American story with moments that have lasting meaning for audiences old enough to remember and those young enough to yearn for inspiration.”
