1776 The Musical

1776 logo for widescreen

Written by Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards
Directed by Michael Kamtman

About the Show:

It is a long hot summer in Philadelphia, and the Continental Congress is an exhausted, annoyed, quarrelsome collection of men at each other’s throats over the burning question of independence from Great Britain. This is a musical that brings humor and humanity to American history and well, since it’s a show which is not widely produced due to the large amounts of men needed to cast—we decided its 2018, and we’re going to let the ladies tell it! Join us for a change of tune with an all-female cast of 1776 The Musical.

About the show:

Relax and step back into North Carolina in 1938. Join the Sanders family as they venture to Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church at the request of Pastor Oglethorpe, who wishes to bring his tiny congregation into the “modern world.” Though the Sanders family tries to appear perfect in the eyes of the church, things don’t go as planned and they reveal their hilariously imperfect natures.
