Cries of Freedom, The Musical

Cries of Freedom, The Musical will be as exciting as ever but this year it will be indoors! Come in out of the heat and enjoy 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.

Spend a full day at SCERA Center for the Arts with plenty of FREE fun and exciting activities!
