Description: Expose your children to a little Civil War history in this musical at Queensborough Community College. In this installment of the Children's Book Club and Performance Series, kids grades 3-8 meet young Lemuel, who has escaped slavery in Georgia. To him, life in Gettysburg is everything he had dreamed it would be. His ideas about the North and the South, as well as what it means to be a free man, are challenged, however, when he unexpectedly befriends Jacob, a young Confederate soldier. The two men may be of different races and on different sides of the Civil War, but they have much to teach each other about bravery and loyalty in ArtsPower�s exciting and suspenseful musical.
Venue Description: For more than 45 years, Queensborough Performing Arts Center, located on the Queensborough Community College campus in Bayside, has served as an outpost of culture to its surrounding community. QPAC offers a central location near many local restaurants, making it an excellent destination for a family night out.
The center has both a professional and a children's series, providing programming for every age. The children's series is brought to the community in conjunction with a book club, a reading program that helps introduce young children to the joys of reading by staging the books chosen. The children's performances held at QPAC make for a great birthday party activity. QPAC provides a private location for lunch, discounted front-row seats, and a "Happy Birthday" serenade from the stage.
