Lamplight Theatre: Sounds of Freedom

KINGSPORT, Tenn., June 9, 2017 – Hear the song of America resonate throughout LampLight Theatre’s 13th Annual Americana production, Sounds of Freedom! Feel the spirit of freedom infuse the room in this musical presentation of our freedom, liberty, and faith! Sounds of Freedom premieres this summer in Downtown Kingsport and will honor those who have served or are currently serving our country, providing for the freedoms that we enjoy.

A NEW production to the LampLight stage, Sounds of Freedom exhibits a plethora of favorite musical classics, dance, and visual arts, including a time to honor members of all branches of the armed forces. The Sounds of Freedom will ring out with a World War II tribute, a section showcasing classic country music that has made America great, a cappella numbers to impress, and inspirational ballads that commemorate the sacrifice of our American soldiers as well as the sacrifice we know from Christ. Our own Foggy Valley’s “Flo Rakestraw” brings her crazy antics to the stage along with Otis Purdy, in charge of security! Join Billy Wayne and a multi-talented cast of singers, musicians, comedians, and dancers as they commemorate the heritage of our nation!

Performances of Freedom’s Anthem will be June 30 – July 2 and July 5-9, Wednesdays – Saturdays at 7:00 pm with additional Matinees Saturdays at 2:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm. Admission is a Suggested Donation of $10 for adults, $5 for students, and FREE for children 5 and under. Doors will open one hour prior to all performances. A love offering will be taken at each performance.

Saturday, July 1st, we will host a Freedom Feast! in The Emporium Banquet Hall adjacent to the theatre preceding the 7pm show. This deliciously catered meal will include fried chicken and barbeque ribs, several sides, rolls, and beverages! What better way to celebrate our country’s freedom than to fellowship over a meal and hear the beautiful music of America to follow? The Feast and Show admission is $30 adults, $17 students (4-12), and free children (0-3). (Group rates available – call for details.)
