Description

TWO PERFORMANCES—June 30th and July 1st

Theatre al fresco returns to Poplar Forest with our special presentation of 1776––the Tony Award-winning musical comedy by Sherman Edwards and Peter Stone based on the events leading up to the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence. Revel in the spirit of the Revolutionary era with Ben (Franklin), Richard Henry (Lee), John (Adams) and Tom (Jefferson); become acquainted with their personal foibles; and celebrate their brilliant contributions to our nation’s history.

Directed by Melora Kordos, the production features Aaron Sifford as Thomas Jefferson, Jeff Price as Benjamin Franklin, Scott Rankins as Richard Henry Lee and Karl Lindevaldsen as John Adams.

Bring your friends and family, and a picnic dinner, sample a selection of local libations from Peaks of Otter Winery and enjoy an evening of entertainment on Jefferson’s south lawn. Admission to the performance is $17.76 for adults (ages 18+); $13 for students (ages 6–17 and college with ID); and $4 for children (ages 5 and under). For questions about the event, please call the Poplar Forest Museum Shop at 434.534.8120.
