Twelfth Night at Kenmore—A Dramatic Theatre Presentation

Historic Kenmore
Friday, January 11
Saturday, January 12
Sunday, January 13, 2019

In the eighteenth century, December 25 was but the start of Christmas, a twelve-day celebration that ended on January 6 or Twelfth Night. This final night was the most festive of the holiday season, if not of the entire year.

In Twelfth Night at Kenmore, the year is 1776. This is the first Christmas that Fielding and Betty Washington Lewis celebrate in their newly built home. It is not the usual joyous atmosphere, however. The Revolutionary War brings fear, doubt, and frustration to the Lewis family, their friends, and Kenmore’s enslaved community. Immerse yourself in the candlelight, music, and decorations of a colonial-American Christmas!
Performance dates: Friday, January 11, Saturday, January 12, Sunday, January 13
Performance times: 3:30 p.m., 4:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Reservations required. Call 540-370-0732 x24 or email [email protected]

Cost: $12.00 adults, $6.00 ages 3-17; under age 3 free.
