About this show

Johnny Tremain, adapted by John Hildreth based on the book by Esther Forbes, is a Newbery Award-winning coming-of-age tale in which the American Revolution is brought to life. Johnny is the most sought after young silversmith in Boston, until an unfortunate accident leaves him without a job or a home. His struggle leads him into the heart of history in the making... and into the secret that reveals who he really is. The play recreates the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's ride and the Battle at Lexington and Concord, all seen through the eyes of a bold and rebellious young man. Katie McLean directs.
