Gateway Players presents- Ellis Island
Gateway Players Theatre in conjunction with the Southbridge Bicentennial Committee will present "Ellis Island" - book, music & lyrics by Cheryl Kemeny.
"Ellis Island" follows the lives of immigrants travelling to the United States during the year 1907. Whole families, single men and women and children board ships in various countries that will take them to the land o' the free, America. Some are going to be reunited with loved ones, while others are searching for adventure or freedom.
At Ellis Island the staff prepares for another busy day, inspecting the thousands of immigrants, granting some the answer to their dreams while sending some back to their homelands.
This show reminds all of the American Dream, and why people want to come to this country and it reinforces what makes our county great - equal opportunity for all.
Gateway Players is very excited that this production will be part of the Southbridge Bi-Centennial Celebration. This production is funded in part by a grant from the Southbridge Cultural Council, a local agency, supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
