Come join us this summer! Phoenix Theatre presents the summer of 2024 musical: 1776. Witness the birth of a nation as our forefathers struggle to craft the Declaration of Independence.

book by Peter Stone
music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards

The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures, determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.

It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence… if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.

Auditions May 14, 15 & 21 6 – 8 pm at the Sheldon Theatre.
