On Tuesday, February 20th, at 7:30pm, in honor of George Washington’s 291st birthday, the Friends of Washington Crossing Park, the Newtown Theatre and Newtown Historic Association will host this special program at the Newtown Theatre, 120 N. State Street, Newtown.
John Godzieba has portrayed Geoge Washington since 2009 and serves in this role at Washington Crossing Historic Park.
During this presentation and Q&A, Godzieba will discuss Washington’s time in Bucks County, little known facts about the general’s life and character, how Washington’s birthday was celebrated through the years, the research that goes into Godzieba’s portrayal and uniform, and his personal experience portraying Washington at the park’s annual crossing reenactments and many other occasions.
Online tickets for this event are $15 for the public and $10 for members of the Friends of Washington Crossing Park, the Newtown Theatre or the Newtown Historic Association. Proceeds will benefit all three non-profit organizations.
