Kick off Independance Day with the Liberal Ladies!

Celebrate July 4th early with us as we travel back in time to Philadelphia in the early summer months of 1776 as Adams, Franklin and Jefferson "piddle, twiddle and resolve" the cause of American independence and the events leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

A must-see for any history buff!

 

"1776 is a musical with music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and a book by Peter Stone. The story is based on the events surrounding the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It focuses on, and partly fictionalizes, the efforts of John Adams to persuade his colleagues to vote for American independence and to sign the document."

**************************************

We'll start the movie around 6, but please join us at any time during the evening.

LOCATION: I'll send out the exact address a day or so before the event to those attending (major cross-streets are SR-51 & Northern Ave.)

FOOD: Snacks and sodas will be available, and we're planning to order pizza(s) for dinner. If you're on any special diets, the clubhouse does have a mini kitchen with a fridge, microwave and toaster oven if you wish to bring your own food.

~~~ * Please update any Yes RSVPs if your plans change * ~~~

    "In some ways, this sparkly paean to patriotism is a subversive little hand grenade, its liberal politics woven into the plot at a time when Richard Nixon was still in the White House. In an exchange that stings now even more than it did then, John Hancock tells John Dickinson, "Fortunately there are not enough men of property in America to dictate policy," and Dickinson replies, "Perhaps not. But don't forget that most men without property would rather protect the possibility of becoming rich, than face the reality of being poor.""

    I’ll be bringing potato salad and a bag of ice. I’ve seen this movie at least twice and saw the live production but am still eager to see it again. Soooo good. Judy
