Lewis and directed by Zachery Kocurek, this new dramatization of C.S.

(Repeats July 24-25)….Lubbock Moonlight Musicals “1776 ~ The Musical” - Join Lubbock Moonlight Musicals this July as they present the history-rich musical “1776” in the stunning outdoor setting of the Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre in Lubbock’s Mackenzie Park. Making use of Texas Tech and community talent, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals always strives to create high quality, family-friendly entertainment that all ages may enjoy. Attendants to “1776” shall witness the birth of a nation as America’s founding fathers struggle to craft the American Declaration of Independence. This pivotal event in the pages of American history blazes to vivid life as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, irritable, charming and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for their fledgling nation. “1776” is a humorous, insightful, and historic musical that follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to persuade the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for and sign the Declaration of Independence. Step back to the summer of 1776 and a nation ready to declare independence…if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards. Book by Peter Stone.
