Freedom Bound tells the true story of Addison White and his escape from slavery in Kentucky, his flight north on the Underground Railroad, and his rescue by the citizens of Mechanicsburg, Ohio.  This important and turbulent chapter of American history comes to life through original songs, riddles and rhyme, and an array of characters that emerge from the past and relive the journey of the Underground Railroad. Mad River Theater Works creates vibrant and evocative plays that combine the rhythms and folkways of everyday life with tales about extraordinary individuals.  Mad River Theater Works returns to The Paramount for a 10th season!

Mad River Theater Works will perform Freedom Bound in four separate performances on January 31st and February 1st, 2019 for groups of area school children in grades 3-8.

Note: These performances are part of The Paramount Theater's Arts Education program, and are sold out.


Presented by The Paramount Theater and the Office of the Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity & Equity
