An exciting historical musical
This fun, robust musical follows Thomas Jefferson from his birth in Virginia through his writing of the Declaration of Independence on the eve of the American Revolution. Amidst adversity, Tom continued his education, eventually studying law at William & Mary, and ultimately rose to the top ranks of leadership in Virginia and the new nation of the United States. Along with associates Patrick Henry, George Wythe, George Mason and Benjamin Franklin, young Thomas Jefferson helped to forge a national character that continues to guide us today.

“The fast-paced, lively production is jam-packed with historical tidbits.”
