CMU Theatre Season ENDS AND MEANS opens with all-female cast in the musical 1776

CMU presents an exciting twist on the story of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Depicting one of the most familiar stories in American history, the musical puts a human face on a distant and historical subject. Casting women in the iconic roles of our ‘founding fathers’ allows us to explore the link between what America is and what it aspires to be in our continued efforts to become the nation of ideals that the Declaration of Independence set forth. With engaging characters, memorable tunes and a book lauded as being one of the best ever written for musical theatre, 1776 is inspiring, entertaining and uplifting.

The musical will open on September 27 and will run for two weekends through October 6 in the Moss Performing Arts Center Robinson Theatre. Tickets are available online at coloradomesa.edu/tickets, by calling 800.410.MAVS or at the Moss Box Office beginning 90-minutes before each performance.
