ONE, TWO, THREE, ONCE UPON A TIME

Dec 07, 2019

One, two, three . . . once upon a time, a showman came to a hamlet in Tennessee with a dream in his head and a love of children in his heart. Henry A. McDaniel, Jr. came to Freed-Hardeman College in 1969 to establish a theatre program. He brought with him an idea he had picked up at Florida State University. He would form a troupe of actors who would entertain children of all ages with songs, poems and stories. They would create magic without the aid of sets or props. With only their imagination and the cooperation of their audience, they would cast a spell on young and old and everyone in between.
