Living Voices Comes To McMurray
Living Voices, a Seattle-based multi-media and theater performance group, visited McMurray on April 1 for a series of four one-hour shows, attended by all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade humanities classes.. Actor Bob Williams led students on a journey through the politics, battles and personal struggles of people who lived and fought during the American Revolution. Williams’ acting and narration was augmented by a full screen multi-media backdrop of archival images, music and drawings from the Revolutionary War era.
Williams introduced students to Peter Freeman, a young, free African American citizen of Massachusetts, whose family farm was burned by the British and subsequently joined the Continental Army. Walking in the footsteps of Peter, McMurray students experienced his firsthand account of many Revolutionary war battles and his compelling and persistent belief in the principle that “all men are created equal.”
Living Voices came to McMurray under the auspices of Vashon Artists in Schools (VAIS), a collaborative program between Vashon Allied Arts and Vashon Island School District.
