American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits and Tony Award winning Best Musical. It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence… if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, and Richard Henry Lee and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.
“1776” puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.
In this chaotic, modern world, learn to bring peace into your life through mindfulness meditation. The Morgan Hill AAUW branch is hosting a workshop on meditation on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9 am – 2 pm at St John the Divine Episcopal Church, 17740 Peak Avenue, Morgan Hill. This day of instruction and practice offers both an introduction to mindfulness meditation for beginners and teachings for more experienced practitioners.
