"To sin by silence, when they should protest, makes cowards of men."
- Abraham Lincoln
Crossmen Productions, Inc. is pleased to announce its 2013 program entitled, Protest.
The program will take the audience on a journey through the years, as people have assembled to let their voices be heard for what they believed in. Through the actions of many, Americans have ensured the liberties our Founding Fathers had envisioned for the nation.
When asked about the 2013 program, Executive Director Fred Morrison said, "This program will be reflective of those American ideals and those people that had the courage to stand up for what they believed in."
Crossmen Program Coordinator Ed Devlin added, "Although the program will touch on several defining moments that changed the course of history, the program is more about engaging the audience with its theme and making the audience reflect on its own beliefs, regarding the power of assembly."
In the words of one of America's greatest activists, Dr. Martin Luther King:
"We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy."
Musical Selections will be taken from the following:
The Prophet's Song -- Queen
She's Too Good For Me -- Sting
The Sound of Silence -- Simon & Garfunkel
They Don't Care About Us -- Michael Jackson
Some Nights -- Fun.
We Shall Overcome -- Pete Seeger

As Crossmen take the field for their 39th season, we ask everyone to reflect on this simple question, "What do YOU stand for?"
