Description

Celebrate our Country’s birthday with staged readings of Fair Liberty’s Call - A Musical Story of Revolutionary America presented at the Port Washington Public Library on Monday, July 9th and Friday, July 13th.  A pre-show discussion begins at 7:00 PM with the performance at 7:30 PM.

Fair Liberty’s Call is an original musical conceived and written by Port Washington resident, Pamela Meadows, with musical direction and arrangements by David Barnett. It takes place in 1775 in a New York tavern and is based on surprising glimpses into the true history of the Revolutionary War era with authentic music from the 18th century. It deals with the conflicting emotions that faced Americans in those politically charged times.

This is the next production in Port Washington Play Troupe’s current season at the library. These performances are sponsored by a Humanities New York Action Grant and made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Huntington Arts Council. Please visit www.fairlibertyscall.com.

“An outstanding work for the musical theatre… I was transported and completely fascinated- the characters, the music, the story all ring true to history while engaging and enlivening modern tastes and sensibilities. A captivating theatrical experience” Steven J. Cahn, Ph.D.
Professor of music theory at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and international lecturer
