I’ll die with this hammer in my hand, Lord, Lord –

I’ll die with this hammer in my hand.

It was the age of steel drivers and riverboat captains, of telegraphs and travel on horseback, of explosive dynamite and great coal steamers chugging along the rails. The tracks of the Transcontinental Railroad were being laid down faster than you could shake a stick at them – and John Henry knew he had to follow those tracks to his destiny. But when a new invention threatens to take the livelihoods of John Henry and all of his steel-driving companions, he knows he has to take a stand - even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

Join Lexington Children’s Theatre for this music-filled story celebrating history, legends, and the power of the human spirit to rise above even the most difficult circumstances.
