Cries of Freedom, The Musical

Enjoy FREE entertainment with Big Band music, “Cries of Freedom, The Musical,” and dramatic speeches. Listen to our historical personalities describe what is was like to be Christopher Columbus, Joan of Arc, Thomas Jefferson or William Bradford.

Our 10th season of “Cries of Freedom” will be exciting! We will have a special drawing before each show and then through song and dance our musical will tell the story of freedom-seeking people from the late 1400′s, with Joan of Arc, to our day.  It is a thrilling dramatization of people from all countries willing to die for that which they hold dearest, their FREEDOM!  Not only will you hear Joan of Arc’s cry, but you will experience the cries of the Dutch in the 1500’s, the Scrooby separatists and pilgrims of the 1600’s and the colonists in the 1700’s. The show will depict the great moment we became a nation as well as many other historical moments. Once again we are privileged to honor the military at the end of every show.
