Seen at the 2005 New York International Fringe Festival — where it earned an Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show — The Miss Education of Jenna Bush poses that the President's daughter gets a job as a public school teacher. The rowdy, gossip-page regular prepares for her first day while fielding well-wishing gifts and phone calls from familiar names.
Winston Beigel directs the one-woman work which he co-wrote with Rauch. The Miss Education of Jenna Bush played sold out performances at the Village Theatre during the Fringe.
Rauch (pronounced "rowsh") has previously seen the stage as Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest, Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Emma in Pterodactyls and Madeline in Vampire Lesbians of Sodom. Voted "Best College Comedian" on MTV's "TRL" (by Carson Daly and Jamie Foxx), she has also toured with the political satire troupe, Gross National Product, and performed in their 2004 productions of Son of a Bush (as Jenna Bush) and Kerry the Vote. She has also done a stint of voice-overs for "Saturday Night Live" and been seen in national commercial campaigns for Staples and Dunkin' Donuts.
