Sinclair Conference Center’s Frederick C. Smith Theatre


**This event is now SOLD OUT. Waiting list is in place.**

Two remarkable evenings of live entertainment are coming to Dayton. And you, your family, friends and co-workers are invited to experience them. And because PBS television cameras are taping these two evenings for national broadcast later in the year, there is NO CHARGE for you to attend and be part of the television audience! This is the way it works all the time with shows in Hollywood and New York, and now we're getting the same opportunity in the Miami Valley. This might be the most prestigious national-television taping in Dayton since the days of the Phil Donahue Show. 

Chuck Underwood, the nation's leading expert on the subject of America's Generations, will present two evenings of spellbinding, truly unforgettable entertainment as he presents the life stories - so far! - of three colossal generations: the Baby Boomers, GenX, and America's next great generation, the Millennials. 

We invite you to experience his magic in the cushy Frederick C. Smith Theater inside the gleaming Ponitz Conference Center at Sinclair Community College. Bring your family members and friends (must be age 18+). Be part of this national-television audience! And then watch these shows, on PBS, beginning in June.

Here's what audiences around the country have written about Chuck Underwood's storytelling:

  • "I was moved to tears with the realization and understanding of my parents, particularly my mother."  --Los Angeles
  • "I would love to watch it with my siblings and father.  I think it would bring tears to everyone."   --Cincinnati
  • "I attended Chuck's presentation in Hollywood last night.  Fannnnnnnntastic!"  --Los Angeles
  • "I am blown away!  I could listen to him all day.  Excellent!"  --Tampa
  • "Wow!  What an eye opener.  I guess I had no idea what has contributed to Gen X core values…and I have a daughter Gen Xer."  --Columbus
  • "Outstanding.  The best I've heard - EVER."  --Washington, D. C.
