What do the words Revolutionary City (RC) suggest to you? Well, ever wish you could go back in time and experience the American Revolution first-hand? (Ever had a secret desire to join a mob?)
With RC, you can...sort of. It just takes a little imagination and a ticket to Colonial Williamsburg. A street theater production that brings history alive, it debuts March 17th, 2008 and runs through the fall.
The two-hour productions feature actors in authentic costumes acting out real events from the revolutionary era along Duke of Gloucester Street, the main drag in the Historic area. This year’s productions will be even more interactive than ever, encouraging observers to feel as if they’re part of the actual events.
They’ve added a morning program, “Revolutionary Stories.” These are kind
of mini-programs featuring juicy tales based on fact (like colonial
love stories) which are designed to whet visitors’ appetites so that
they’ll stay for the main shows in the afternoon.
Here’s the schedule:
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (1774-1776)
Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays (1776-1781)
Now, to attend these programs, you have to have a Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket. (Sorry, this is one of those events where being a street bystander just won’t cut it. But if you DO want to see parts of Colonial Williamsburg without paying admission, here's how.)
Here's the Colonial Williamsburg phone number: 1-800-HISTORY. Their website is www.history.org.
Revolutions can be expensive. Want to see this one for less? Here are two options:
