North Dakota State University serves up a colorful and theatrical history lesson with "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson."
The musical uses contemporary music (it's a rock opera) and vernacular (songs like "Populism, Yea Yea" and "I'm So That Guy!") to tell the life story of America's seventh president, from his military prowess in beating the British in the Battle of New Orleans to his iron-fisted rule, sending Indians down the Trail of Tears.
This is no "Schoolhouse Rock," however, as the show is for ages 13 and older.
The music starts at 7:30 p.m. at Askanase Auditorium, tonight through Saturday and again Oct. 28-31.
Tickets are $10 for students, $18 for seniors and $20 for adults.
