SCF Venice to Host One-Man Play, “Give ’Em Hell, Harry”

(Bradenton, Fla., March 2, 2017) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) will host veteran actor Jack Rabito portraying President Harry S. Truman in “Give ’Em Hell, Harry” 11 a.m. to noon March 29 in Building 800, Selby Room, at SCF Venice, 8000 S. Tamiami Trail.

Rabito, veteran actor of more than 50 stage shows from Chicago to Florida, candidly portrays Truman as he never stops “shooting from the lip.” The 33rd president confronted some of the most critical problems of his time: World War II, the dawning of the Atomic Age, the Korean War and his conflict with Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Soviet espionage and McCarthyism.

The one-man play, sponsored by the History and Political Science Club, is free and open to the public. No reservations are required; seating is first come, first served. For more information, contact club advisor Michael Rogers at 941-408-1485 or
