ASPEN – Aspen Community Theatre opens its production of the musical “1776” Thursday at the Wheeler Opera House.

The show runs through Nov. 14, with performances at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4 through Saturday, Nov. 6, and Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 11-13. Matinee performances are set for 2 p.m. Sundays, Nov. 7 and 14. Tickets for the Sunday, Nov. 7, matinee are free for children grades one through 12, and for adults accompanying them.

The musical, by Sherman Edwards, tells of the 1776 Continental Congress in Philadelphia that led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and the creation of the United States of America. The story focuses on John Adams, the passionate, verbose Massachusetts lawyer who tries to persuade his fellow delegates to declare America’s independence from Great Britain.

Graham Northrup stars as Adams, with Julie Maniscalchi as his wife, Abigail, Jeff James-Schlepp as Benjamin Franklin and Brian Keleher as Thomas Jefferson.
