Jason and Kyle, recent friends from different sides of the track, become embroiled in the adventure of their lives when they discover a mysterious airplane at the local small-town airport. The boys sneak aboard the plane for a look, but are forced to hide in the luggage compartment when two strange men show up. Soon Jason and Kyle unexpectedly find themselves airborne over the open Arizona desert. After hours in the air, the boys unwittingly uncover a bomb in the luggage compartment. When they burst into the cabin to report their discovery, they find that everyone on board has bailed out. The boys must take the controls and land the plane themselves. But their troubles are only beginning as Jason and Kyle realize that they’ve foiled a heist to steal millions of dollars from the mob in this high-action, coming-of-age film.

Broadway West Theater performs “1776″


 
1776 - Performed at Dixie High SchoolBook by  Peter Stone
Music by  Sherman Edwards
Lyrics by  Sherman Edwards
Based on a concept by Sherman Edwards
 
Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated G
 
 American history blazes to vivid life in this unconventional Broadway hit. It’s the summer of 1776 and the nation is ready to declare independence…if only the founding fathers can agree! “1776″ follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Richard Henry Lee, and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote to free their fledgling nation from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.
 
Involving a sizeable, largely male ensemble with no chorus, the show features a striking score by Sherman Edwards, which is modest in its vocal requirements, and a book by Peter Stone, which is legendary in its craftsmanship. “1776″ is a funny, insightful and compelling drama that puts a human face on the pages of history!
 
 
1776 Presented in the Dixie High School Theater, just over one mile from Best Western Coral Hills.
