THIS SHOW WAS TERRIFIC! GREAT ACTING, GREAT SINGING VOICES, BEAUTIFULLY COSTUMED AND EXCEPTIONALLY WELL DIRECTED. THIS COMPANY IS A WELL KNOWN COMMUNITY THEATRE IN GLENDALE, BUT THE QUALITY OF THIS SHOW IS TRULY PROFESSIONAL. NOT MANY MORE PERFORMANCES LEFT, SO SEE IT IF YOU CAN. THE PRICE IS RIGHT TOO!

This company does an amazing job with it's selected productions. Well acted and sung. Performed in the round. Now if we could only get the audience members to let go of their outside world for two hours it would only enhance everyone's theater...continued
Under the helm of sought after Los Angeles theatre director Todd Nielsen, the Tony Award-winning musical 1776 will be presented at the Glendale Centre Theatre. With music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards, book by Peter Stone, and musical direction by the award-winning Steven Applegate, 1776 premiered on Broadway in 1969 and is based on the events leading up to the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence. John Adams, disliked by many in Congress, joins Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to bring forward a resolution for independence that will eventually set America free from England’s tyranny. Powerful performances and an impeccably crafted script make 1776 as relevant today as it was when first written. Add a memorable score, a spectacular cast of 25… and 1776 delivers a riveting evening of theatre filled with history, humor, heart and romance.
