Pride, Patriotism Co-Star In Rivertown Theaters’ ‘1776’

KENNER, LA – Rivertown will be the center of the most entertaining political process in history when the Tony Award-winning musical “1776” convenes on the Main Stage November 4 -20, just in time to give voters some relief and diversion from this year’s Presidential election mayhem. 

         The turning point in American history blazes to vivid life in Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts’ November musical “1776.” A funny, insightful and compelling musical with a striking score and legendary book, “1776” puts a human face on the pages of history, theater reps said. See the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, charming and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right things for our fledging nation. Step back in time and be inspired by our founding fathers’ pride and patriotism as they attempt to convince Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarch by signing the Declaration of Independence.
