Don't Miss the Ride of a Lifetime
At MCCC's Kelsey Theatre April 14

3/15/07


Join the award-winning TheatreworksUSA for the ride that changed history, when "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" comes to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre. This new musical, inspired by the life of a true hero of the American Revolution, will be presented for two shows only, Saturday, April 14 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

This inspiring story is set in Boston, where a simple artisan named Paul Revere makes a humble living as a silversmith, winning praise for his work from both his American and British customers. When Paul's activist friends, John Hancock and Samuel Adams, urge him to stand with them against the British, he hesitates as he weighs the costs to his family and his livelihood. Ultimately he must choose between doing what is easy and doing what is right.
