Civil War diary becomes original musical

McCook, Nebraska¬† – Despite the horror of the Civil War, the American spirit emerged stronger and more heartfelt than ever before. That is the majestic message of “Civil War Voices,” an original musical which will be presented Saturday, Feb. 21, at the historic Fox Theatre in McCook.


The professional presentation will serve as the Western Nebraska Premiere of the show, which was written by Jim Harris, a 1973 graduate of McCook High School and arranged and scored by Mark Hayes, a world renowned composer.

The Civil War Voices production will come to McCook one week after it is presented at the Lied Center as a highlight presentation during Lincoln’s 200th anniversary.
