Thu 1  8 pm Driving Miss Daisy Starring Emmy Award Winner Michael Learned from The Waltons, Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn (played by New Orleans actor, Lance Nicols). Totem Pole Playhouse
9555 Golf Course Road
Fayetteville, PA 17222
888-805-7056 At first, Daisy is none to happy about being forced to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Gradually, however, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deep-rooted affection. This Pulitzer-Prize winning masterpiece is a delicate depiction of racial tensions, the passage of time and the experience of aging. Playwright Alfred Uhry creates two outsiders who come to a mutual respect grounded in each of their independence, strength and stubborn integrity. Directed by Michael Bloom.

Key war-time leaders have traveled here to pay their respects: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, John F. Kennedy, Bernard Montgomery. And one, Dwight D. Eisenhower, chose to move here. Your guide can share details of their visits to Gettysburg, as you see this famous little town from a fresh perspective.

June 4: Culp's Hill and East Cemetery Hill presented by Joe Mieczkowski

Culp’s Hill and East Cemetery Hill are two of the most unique, and often overlooked, portions of the Gettysburg battlefield. These areas witnessed heavy fighting at night, a rare occurrence in the Civil War, with the longest sustained fighting of the battle raging in and around Culp’s Hill on July 2 and 3. Join us for the first guided horse carriage tour of this fascinating portion of the battlefield and learn the history and stories behind those who fought at both locations. For early visitors to Gettysburg both Culp’s Hill and East Cemetery Hill were popular destinations, our tour will be one of the first carriage tours of these areas since the late 19th century. This tour is to highlight the critical impact these locations had on the outcome of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a 15-30 minute stop at Spangler Spring, guests may get off the carriage to walk the spring, use the restroom and talk to the LBG. This tour does go through a portion of the town in order to get to East Confederate Avenue.

Thu 8  8 pm Driving Miss Daisy Starring Emmy Award Winner Michael Learned from The Waltons, Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn (played by New Orleans actor, Lance Nicols). Totem Pole Playhouse
9555 Golf Course Road
Fayetteville, PA 17222
888-805-7056 At first, Daisy is none to happy about being forced to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Gradually, however, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deep-rooted affection. This Pulitzer-Prize winning masterpiece is a delicate depiction of racial tensions, the passage of time and the experience of aging. Playwright Alfred Uhry creates two outsiders who come to a mutual respect grounded in each of their independence, strength and stubborn integrity. Directed by Michael Bloom.
