[SDCPJ] A Hammer, A Bell, and A Song to Sing at SD Rep!

A Hammer, A Bell, and A Song to Sing
A World Premiere Workshop Production
Written by Todd Salovey with Vaughn Armstrong, Dave Crossland and Jim Mooney

Directed by Todd Salovey
Musical Direction and Arrangements by Bruno Louchouarn

January 10-29, 2012
on the Lyceum Stage

From the American Revolution to the Occupy movement of 2011, music and song have served as a powerful agent of change in American history.

Pete Seeger's grandson Tao Seeger said last month "If we want to get people talking to each other, we should try to get them singing together." Inspired by the work of Pete and his grandson, A Hammer, A Bell, and A Song to Sing celebrates the history of change in America through song, story, and spoken word.

A trio of first class musicians and REP Associate Artistic Director Todd Salovey (Blessing of a Broken Heart, A Weekend with Pablo Picasso) have created an inspiring new play with music that is as immediate as today's headlines and as timeless as America's 400 year reach for a higher ground.

Sing along with the performers as you hear over 25 songs - from the American Revolution's Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier " to "We Shall Overcome" to "The Times They Are A Changin'"- that call for peace, justice, freedom and change from some of our country's most memorable songwriters. Rediscover the inspiring words from past presidents and founding fathers, poets such as Allen Ginsberg and Henry David Thoreau, and activists like César Chávez and Dr. Martin Luther King. Marvel at the stunning visuals from our collective memory in a multimedia video and slide show that accompanies the music and text. People, get ready. A Hammer, A Bell, and A Song to Sing is sure to stir your heart with a soulful call for justice and change.
