Show Description:

“A Reading of the Declaration of Independence, Poor Richard’s Almanac & Hits of the 1770s” has become a tradition for The Lantern Theatre. It contains music, songs from the period, comedy, original scenes written by Eric Schmiedl, wisdom, excerpts from Benjamin Franklin’s Poor Richard’s Almanac, and history, a reading of our founding document.

Put it all together, on the historic campus of Dunham Tavern Museum, and it’s a great way to celebrate Independence Day weekend. The performance will take place outside in the Gray Garden behind Dunham Tavern and festive refreshments will be served.
