As we settle into the 21st Century, Pushcart Players offers a spirited salute to America in song, dance and story.

This uplifting production takes a loving look at a small group of immigrants who came to this country in 1903 seeking freedom, opportunity and a better life for themselves, their children and their children’s children.

The immigrants in our play provide a symbolic representation of the many émigrés from a multitude of nations that have reached our shores over the years. Prevailing themes throughout the presentation are the immigrant experience, ethnic diversity, and the precious legacy of freedom and democracy in America.
