Make your plans to join us for the Florida College alumni musical, “1776,” on Feb. 3-6, 2017.
The production will feature some of Florida College’s talented alumni, faculty and staff, including Matt Johnson, Luke Chandler, Todd Chandler, Royce Chandler, Melanie (Brooks) Chandler, Thaxter Dickey, Benjamin Payne, and Amanda (Graham) Payne.
The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits and winner of three Tony awards including best musical. “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.
