Kick off your July 4th festivities with a Poplar Forest tradition! Take in a performance at the historic home’s 8th annual presentation of 1776—the Tony Award-winning musical comedy based on the events leading up to the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence—on Mr. Jefferson’s south lawn for three nights only. Revel in the revolutionary spirit while getting acquainted with Ben (Franklin), Richard Henry (Lee), John (Adams) and Tom (Jefferson) and celebrate their brilliant contributions to our country’s history.  Bring your family and friends, grab your chairs or a blanket, and sit back and enjoy theatre under the stars. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages as well as snacks will be available for purchase on site.

Tickets to 1776 are $17.76 for adults (ages 18+); $13 for students (ages 6 –17 and college); and $4 for children (ages 5 and under). Rain date: Sunday, June 26, 2022.
