Theatre in the ‘hood in partnership with The Arbor Roses HOA is pleased to invite local residents to a performance featuring an intimate chat with Abraham Lincoln.
Sunday, Sept. 30, 3:00 PM – This is a family-friendly, (ages 10+ recommended), free event.
Weather permitting, we’ll be at “Speaker’s Circle” in the Arbor Roses neighborhood, at the intersection of SE 11th Avenue and SE Bacarra Street in Hillsboro. If it’s raining, we’ll be in the nearby clubhouse. The performance is approximately 30 minutes long, with a question and answer period following.
What you can expect:
Imagine having the chance to ask Abraham Lincoln about his years in the White House! In this press conference-style town hall program, Lincoln portrayer Steve Holgate gives audiences a chance to do just that. Starting with his remarkable resemblance to our 16th President, Holgate gives a compelling 30-minute presentation, centering on Lincoln’s presidency and featuring selections from Lincoln’s most famous speeches, including the Gettysburg Address. He then opens the floor to questions from his audience, who take on the role of Civil War-era journalists.
We hope you’ll join us for this unique opportunity and an informative, educational and entertaining afternoon.
