Produced by Actors’ Repertory Theatre of Simi. It’s the summer of 1776, and a fledgling nation is ready to declare independence… if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. With quick-witted dialogue and a playful score, 1776 dramatizes the struggle in Philadelphia’s Second Continental Congress to declare independence. John Adams, the original innovator behind America’s Declaration of Independence, teams up with Benjamin Franklin, Richard Henry Lee, and Thomas Jefferson to battle those in Congress who oppose the movement to declare independence from England. Inspired by the letters and memoirs of America’s founding fathers, this classic, Tony Award-winning musical showcases the principles, pride and determination that influenced the birth of our nation.
