Marylanders are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 throughout the year, and this week, at Fort McHenry, students from the Baltimore School for the Arts will present a theatrical work called “Fighting for Freedom.”  It’s three scenes about the beginning of the War of 1812. It’s a collaboration with the Maryland Historical Society and National Park Service.

The first public performance will be held on April 21, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Additional performances will be held on April 23 and 24 at 10:00 a.m at Fort McHenry, and there will be one on April 27 at the Maryland Historical Society at 6:00 p.m.

Norah Worthington is on the faculty of the School for the Arts.  She talks about the scenes with Tom Hall, along with two of the students  in the production, Lance Strickland and T’Pre Mayer.
