He said, “It will be like nothing like you’ve seen before,”  and he was right. On January 4, 2017, Brian Anthony Simmons, a member of the Living Voices acting group, came to Sagamore Middle School. He was a phenomenal performer and he informed the entire seventh grade about the American Revolution using a slideshow and his acting skills. He played a slideshow full of clips and pictures, and acted the story that was in the slideshow. He used humor and actual  facts.  Madeline Erickson stated, “He was very informative and was a fantastic actor.” Indeed he was; Mr. Simmons informed us about what an average African American’s life would have been during the Revolutionary War, with his main character Peter Freeman. Bobby Galasso stated, “I liked how it was a one-man show.” The students thought that it was almost impossible to memorize a 40 minute script in three months, but Mr. Simmons did it skillfully.  This show was very amusing to watch and we learned many facts about the Revolutionary War.
