DESCRIPTION

Experience the candlelight, music, and decorations of a colonial Christmas…and the uncertainty of Revolution!

In the eighteenth century, December 25 was but the start of Christmas, a twelve-day celebration that ended on 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.

View dramatic scenes by costumed actors in the first floor rooms of Kenmore.

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 events@gwffoundation.org

Cost: $15.00 adults, $7.50 students; free ages 6 and under
