The Price of Freedom

This weekend and next, a local production is being held at the Mesa Arts Center. "The Price of Freedom" will be at the MAC Saturday, February 21st, Thursday the 26th, Friday the 27th, and Saturday the 28th. This is a wonderful production written by two good ole' Mesa boys (okay, now they are men). I've been to this production in the past and there were tears, so I can only imagine the emotion from watching this performance at a venue like the Mesa Arts Center. Don't miss your chance.

(My grandpa and grandma, also Mesa natives, became engaged while my grandpa was on a 3 day furlough before going to war - WW II.)

"The Price of Freedom," by Rob Gardner and McKane Davis fuses film and original music to tell the stories of 4 soldiers in World War II and the families they left behind. It combines actual archival war footage, still photos, and letters with original songs, orchestrations and live vocalists. The stories are based on actual letters and events that transpired during World War II.
