"An American Journey"
Presented by Revels at Arsenal Center For The Arts Charles Mosesian Theater
March 4, 2012
The story of American immigration comes to life through music, songs and stories as Revels' acclaimed 40-member touring ensemble, Revels Repertory Company, stars in this 90-minute original stage production. Set in 1907 on a crowded passenger ship bound for America, Italian, Irish and Eastern European Jewish families create an unlikely community, sharing their music, their memories and their dreams as they leave their homelands and hardships behind in search of a better life in America, the land of hope and promise. Written & Directed by Patrick Swanson. Kay Dunlap, music director. A great show for families!
Rhonda R. McClure of the New England Historic Genealogical Society will present a free pre-show talk, "Researching your Family History" at 2:30pm.
