A.C.T.'s Young Conservatory to present HOMEFRONTA.C.T.'s Young Conservatory to present HOMEFRONT
by BWW News Desk - Jul 20, 2017

This August, American Conservatory Theater's Young Conservatory (YC) will present Homefront, a passionate and powerful musical that tells the story of remarkable young people courageously struggling to come of age in a world rocked by conflict. Emma Kolmeier and her two young siblings flee from Germany to escape World War I, leaving everything they know far behind. The family settles in southern Illinois, where they make new friends-but also begin to confront harsh persecution as America enters the war against Germany. As they experience the first twinges of romance and dream of the future, their lives are transformed in astonishing ways, forever redefining their understanding of home. Homefront was the first commissioned musical for the Young Conservatory and received its world premiere in June 2011. (more...)
