Metro Theater Company presents this Civil War musical. The Civil War comes into sharp focus in this exciting musical play set in 1863. Three young boys are at the center of the story: Jackson, a drummer in the Union army; Rufus, a southern boy orphaned by the war; and George Washington, an African American making his way to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Timeless themes are expressed in this story of courage, truth and brotherhood. With lively action, rich music, evocative costumes, and just the right amount of humor, Battledrum offers young people a compelling point of entry into the complexities of the war that divided our nation.
Today at 10 a.m. Shows continue through January 29.
Tickets are $16 for adults; $14 for students, seniors and Military members. $12 for Missouri History Museum members and groups of 10 or more. $8 school group rate.
