Portraying George Washington: An Evening with John Godzieba

February 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


This year marks George Washington’s 292nd birthday. In his honor, the Newtown Theatre will host a special program, “Portraying George Washington: An Evening with John Godzieba,” on Tuesday, February 20 at 7:30 PM.

Godzieba has portrayed George Washington since 2009 and serves in this role at Washington Crossing Historic Park.

During his February 20 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 Historic Association, or the Newtown Theatre. Proceeds will benefit all three non-profit organizations.
