Set during a "hot as blazes" summer in Philadelphia, "1776" is the Tony Award-winning musical about the seminal act in American history: the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Sectional differences, pride and fear threaten the Declaration and the fledgling nation.

The production features a cast of 23 magnificent performers from our community. "1776" is produced by The Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse under the direction of Anastacia Hawkins-Smith and will be adapted to the King Center stage using the sets, costumes, lighting and sound from the production's previous successful run at the Playhouse.
