A.C.T.'s Young Conservatory presents


Book by Craig Slaight
Music and Lyrics by Creighton Irons
Directed by Domenique Lozano

August 8–19, 2017

A.C.T.’s Strand Theater
1127 Market Street, San Francisco

In this passionate and powerful musical, originally commissioned for the Young Conservatory, Emma Kolemeir 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—and begin to confront harsh persecution as America enters the war against Germany. Set against the backdrop of a tumultuous and riveting moment in history, Homefront tells the story of remarkable young people courageously struggling to come of age in a world rocked by conflict. 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.
