STAGE DOOR PRODUCTIONS PARTNERS WITH RAPAHANNOCK LEGAL SERVICES

Legal theatre drama "Inherit the Wind" to be presented

Stage Door Productions is joining forces with Rapahannock Legal Services to Inherit-the-Windpresent the courthouse drama "Inherit the Wind" on October 4 and 5 at 8:00 pm and October 6 at 2:00 pm at the Fredericksburg Circuit Courthouse. The theatre and legal worlds are collaborating on this very special project, a stage adaptation of the famous Scopes trial. In this production, law and history will turn active, and all net proceeds will benefit Rappahannock Legal Services and Stage Door Productions.

Inherit the Wind was written in the early 1950s by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee and will be directed by Kimberly Kemp. Set in a rural Southern town, its events parallel the historic Scopes trial, and much of the script comes from court records of the real trial. The play tells the story of a science teacher on trial for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution, and how his trial garners serious media attention and helps to change the religious and scientific landscape of 20th century America.

As a non-profit theatre company dedicated to serving Fredericksburg and the surrounding communities, Stage Door will have actors from both the theatre and legal worlds encouraging public discourse through the arts. Additional information can be found at stagedoorproductions.org.

Pouches Visits the Past

HistoryCamp

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
