Freedom Bound, January 31, 4:00 - 5:00PM, Timilty Middle School in Roxbury


Freedom Bound, a musical play telling the true story of Addison White, a fugitive from Kentucky who traveled north on the Underground Railroad, will be presented Saturday afternoon, January 31, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. in the auditorium at the Timilty Middle School.  Admission to the performance is FREE compliments of Madison Park Development Corporation and The Barr Foundation.

Performed by Mad River Theater Works, Freedom Bound uses drama and songs to create characters who emerge from the past to bring the nineteenth-century Underground Railroad to life.  In the play, Addison White escapes in 1851 to Ohio where he is befriended by a farmer named Udney Hyde. It is not long before White is discovered, and federal marshals surround Hyde’s house in the middle of the night. Over 100 neighbors confront the marshals and demand they set White free.  Click here for more details.
