A Conversation with Henry and Jefferson

Barter Theatre, 6:00pm

For one night only at Barter Theatre, meet Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson for an interactive evening of history. 

Acclaimed reenactors Bill Barker and Richard Schumann will take the Barter Theatre stage in Abingdon on Thursday February 13, 2020 for "Conversation with Henry and Jefferson," a one-night interactive dialogue you won't want to miss.

The program begins at 7:00pm and the doors open at 6:00pm. Guests will enjoy colonial era music from local brothers "Sons of Liberty" and the "Muster Ground Musick" fife and drum corps. 

Mr. Barker currently portrays Thomas Jefferson at Monticello, and Mr. Schumann depicts Patrick Henry at Colonial Williamsburg. Honing their skills since 1981, both men have become recognized as master interpreters of these two Founding Fathers and key figures in Virginia's history.

Tickets are $25 per adult. Free child ticket with the purchase of each adult ticket. The event is a fundraiser for the Historical Society of Washington County, Inc. a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation.
