The Ticonderoga Historical Society (THS) will present a free public program on Friday, August 20 at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
“The Singing of the Green” is a look at the great traditions of American musical theater and how much those traditions owe to Irish-Americans,” says THS Managing Director Diane O’Connor. “It’s a story that is very relevant to New York and has ties to the Adirondacks.”
Highlights of the program will include music from some of the great theater productions, dating back to the mid-1800s. “We’re working to develop a soundtrack that everyone will find delightful, and we will be encouraging everyone to sing along,” says O’Connor.
The program is one in a series looking at “History, Race and Gender in the Adirondacks,” a programmatic theme for the Hancock House Museum.
The program will be held outdoors, under a tent, and attendees should bring their own lawn chairs. Reservations may be made by calling the Hancock House at 518-585-7868 or via e-mail to: email@example.com.
