New patriotic musical tribute comes to LampLight Theatre
Published 9:30 am Tuesday, June 28, 2022
LampLight Theatre in Kingsport will present a brand new Patriotic Tribute this year. “Spirit of Liberty” will resonate the message of freedom with music classics, dance, and comedy. This is the 17th Annual Americana show that LampLight has produced. These patriotic extravaganzas have become a favorite for patrons and performers alike. “The greatest joy in performing in our patriotic show is the unity we share in our freedom, liberty, and faith,” says producer/director Billy Wayne. “Spirit of Liberty” is a salute to those who have served or are currently serving our country. Their firm stand and sacrifice have provided for our freedoms.
“Spirit of Liberty” will pay tribute to not only to America, but to our home state as well with a Tennessee Tribute. It will feature favorites such as “Tennessee Mountain Home,” “Jackson,” and of course, “Rocky Top.” The show will be honoring the different branches of the military and pay respect to all of our military heroes with their anthems sang proudly. This year, there will be a moving tribute to the Ukraine and their plight with “For Freedom.” In remembrance of all of the precious souls that have been taken from us too soon in school shootings, such as the tragedy in Uvalde, LampLight Theatre will also perform “This is Your Time” as a special tribute. Incredible solo vocalists, ensembles, and a chorus of over 50 members will lift their voices in celebration of our freedom with Billy Wayne and a multi-talented cast of singers, musicians, comedians, and dancers.
Performances of “Spirit of Liberty” will be July 1-3, July 8–10, and July 15-17, Fridays through Sundays at 7 p.m. with additional matinees on Saturdays at 2 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for students, and FREE for children 5 and under. Doors will open one hour prior to all performances. A BBQ Dinner option is also available on July 9 at 6 p.m. Dinner Theatre is $35 for adults and $28 for students.
