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!
