Witness the birth of a nation as our forefathers struggle to craft the Declaration of Independence. 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.

FREE Staged Reading of Perfect Score

June 4, 2016
2:00pm at the Ensemble Theatre at Jackson School of the Arts

Four friends – a hippie, a joke, a perfectionist, and a slacker – negotiate the college application process as graduation day rapidly approaches.  SATs and GPAs are just a part of their worries, as senioritis, awkward interviews, and the pressure to succeed provide even bigger hurdles in the race to the fat-envelope finish line.

Directed by Candi Dunnigan, featuring Abbigail Nelson, Maria Gerring, Joseph Gerring, Daryth Lennox, Steven Owsley, Mirabelle Peter, and Zenzi Peter.
