A Celebration of Faribault: The 1855 Live Show

Thomas S. Buckham is a young lawyer in the frontier town of Faribault, Minnesota when an unspeakably brutal war sets the young state ablaze. Tom volunteers to fight, bringing him face-to-face with Alexander Faribault–the city’s idealistic founder and a man torn between serene memories and a changing world. When the past crumbles around Alex and the compassionate Bishop Whipple, Tom will struggle to build a future for himself and his distant sweetheart, Anna Mallary, a woman with an unyielding spirit and a deep capacity for love. “A Celebration of Faribault: The 1855 Live Show” is a charming, immersive, emotionally affecting historical saga, and a heartfelt debut for directors Samuel Temple and Logan Ledman, creators of the acclaimed FCTV history series, 1855. It features a live youth orchestra performing an original score from the series’ composer Sam Dwyer.
