Who says history can’t be fun? Not Lifeline Theatre. Company member John Hildreth has adapted the 1943 coming-of-age novel, Johnny Tremain, by historian Esther Forbes, into a pleasant, light-hearted tale of the American Revolution set in Boston from 1773 to 1776. Peopled by the likes of Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and John Hancock, Johnny Tremain (Geoff Button) is the fictional silversmith apprentice turned horse boy who helped the Sons of Liberty spy on the British military during the opening salvos of the American Revolution.
