1776 will remind us all of the world our forefathers envisioned when they created this nation. With music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and a book by Peter Stone, 1776 is a compelling story breathing fresh life into the events surrounding the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The story follows historical figures John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson 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. 1776 is an entertaining and educational experience for the whole family!
