Door County Performance – American Folklore Theatre Presents And If Elected

And if Elected features Jeffrey Herbst, Jake Endres, and Elisa Korenne.

This fall, American Folklore Theatre spices up election season with And If Elected, a musical look back at presidential campaign history. The show, performed during every election year since 1992, features facts, jokes, and songs from presidential elections from 1776 to the present.

Compiled by David Peterson, Fred Alley, and Jeffrey Herbst, And If Elected takes a lighthearted, often satirical, and occasionally poignant look at the complete history of the presidential election, telling stories of mudslinging and muckraking that have surprised and delighted audiences for almost 20 years.

This year’s production will feature AFT performer and Artistic Director Jeffrey Herbst, who has performed in each incarnation of the show since 1992, Minneapolis-based performer Jake Endres, and Elisa Korenne, a singer-songwriter making her Door County debut.

And If Elected will play from October 9 – 19 at Old Gibraltar Town Hall in Fish Creek and October 23 – November 2 at the Third Avenue Playhouse in Sturgeon Bay. All shows run Thursday through Sunday and cost $16 for adults and $10 for children. Tickets may be purchased at the AFT Office in Ephraim’s Green Gables shops, online at, or by calling 920.854.6117. Tickets for Third Avenue Playhouse performances may be purchased at TAP or by calling 920.743.1760.
