Greetings Veterans and their loved ones,
April 9th, 2015 will mark the 150th anniversary of one of the United States’ most historical moments—the conclusion of the Civil War. In honor of this significant part of our nation’s history, the Wilmington Drama League will be showing the musical production The Civil War the Musical, directed by Deb Johnson and musically directed by Caty Butler, from April 24th until May 3rd
The Civil War, nominated for a Tony Award for the Best Musical, draws on genuine historical letters, diaries, speeches and firsthand accounts of the war through the viewpoints of slaves, Union and Confederate soldiers, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Walt Whitman, and many others. In addition to blending a variety of styles of music including Gospel, Folk, Country, Rock, and Rhythm and Blues, this musical features authentic props and costumes from the Civil War era.
The Wilmington Drama League’s production of The Civil War is not only historically accurate, but it’s an entertaining way for your organization to learn about our nation’s history which is why we hope that you will consider using our production as a complement to your curriculum and encourage your team to come out to see this remarkable production.
