Friday, November 17
From Sea to Shining Sea.
Composer Peter Boyer’s sweeping and cinematic symphony, Ellis Island: The Dream of America underscores the true words of American immigrants. Actors from Cherry Creek Theatre Company perform seven heartfelt and hilarious stories that seamlessly weave into the “well crafted and emotionally resonant” piece (The Dallas Morning News). O Beautiful on November 17 kicks off with Aaron Copland’s American anthem, Fanfare for the Common Man and a suite from the incomparable George & Ira Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess.
