In America, some old houses have secret tunnels leading into the woods or attics with hidden stairways. These were stops on the Underground Railroad, a network of friends who helped slaves escape to freedom in Canada before the Civil War. This dangerous and turbulent period of U.S. history is the subject of “Freedom Bound,” a play with music by Mad River Theater Works. The play brings to life the story of Addison White, an escaped slave, and his rescue by the citizens of Mechanicsburg, Ohio. Show times: 9:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
