Sat 1 5:00 till 9:00 pm Confederates Take The Shriver House This living history presentation provides visitors an opportunity to speak with Confederate soldiers as they prepare for battle.

Reservations are currently being accepted by calling 717-337-2800. Ask for Nancie or Kim.

Visitors can also see where Civil War medical supplies and live cartridges were discovered during the restoration of the Shrivers’ home 133 years after the fighting ended. After visiting the make-shift hospital set up in the summer kitchen at the conclusion of the tour, visitors can share a root beer with the soldiers in Shriver’s Saloon and meet some of Gettysburg’s “local” citizens who also have harrowing stories to share.

The Battle of Gettysburg encompassed not only the surrounding countryside but the streets of this historic town as well. This is the only reenactment to take place in the streets of Gettysburg. Learn first-hand what occurred during those three days of horror that terrified the citizens of Gettysburg and how the Shrivers’ home was used during and after the fighting.


Hettie Shriver took her two girls, Sadie (7) and Mollie (5), and 15-year-old neighbor, Tillie Pierce, to seek safety outside town only to find themselves deep within the battle lines - at the base of Little Round Top!
Sharpshooters commandeered Hettie’s abandoned house to fire muskets from the Shrivers' attic window.
Beautifully furnished rooms of the house left in ruins by the invading forces.
Surgeons struggle to save lives in a make-shift hospital in the summer kitchen.
Enjoy a root beer in Shriver's Saloon while younger visitors have a nurse bandage their wounds (leaving a small spurt of blood seeping through the bandage) or make whirligigs to take along as a memento of your visit.
Witness the only reenactment to take place in the streets of Gettysburg - in the very house where it actually happened on July 1, 2 & 3, 1863.

Fri 7  8 pm
I Love a Piano, The Music of Irving Berlin
 
I Love a Piano is the celebration of the music of Irving Berlin. It follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present. Totem Pole Playhouse
9555 Golf Course Road
Fayetteville, PA 17222
888-805-7056

Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including classics such as ‘Blue Skies,’ ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business,’ ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz,’ Cheek to Cheek,’ ‘Always,’ ‘How Deep Is the Ocean,’ ‘Anything You Can Do,’ ‘God Bless America,’ and, of course, ‘I Love a Piano.’ Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had ‘no place in American music – he is American music.’

"…Berlin’s musical styles and the cleverness of his simple rhymes makes it easy to understand why the songwriter remains a national treasure.” —The Boston Globe

Note: tickets for juniors (ages 5-15) are 30% off, group pricing available

Show Times: July 7-23

Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including classics such as ‘Blue Skies,’ ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business,’ ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz,’ Cheek to Cheek,’ ‘Always,’ ‘How Deep Is the Ocean,’ ‘Anything You Can Do,’ ‘God Bless America,’ and, of course, ‘I Love a Piano.’ Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had ‘no place in American music – he is American music.’

I Love a Piano, The Music of Irving Berlin
 
I Love a Piano is the celebration of the music of Irving Berlin. It follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present. Totem Pole Playhouse
9555 Golf Course Road
Fayetteville, PA 17222
888-805-7056

Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including classics such as ‘Blue Skies,’ ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business,’ ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz,’ Cheek to Cheek,’ ‘Always,’ ‘How Deep Is the Ocean,’ ‘Anything You Can Do,’ ‘God Bless America,’ and, of course, ‘I Love a Piano.’ Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had ‘no place in American music – he is American music.’

"…Berlin’s musical styles and the cleverness of his simple rhymes makes it easy to understand why the songwriter remains a national treasure.” —The Boston Globe

888-805-7056

Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including classics such as ‘Blue Skies,’ ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business,’ ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz,’ Cheek to Cheek,’ ‘Always,’ ‘How Deep Is the Ocean,’ ‘Anything You Can Do,’ ‘God Bless America,’ and, of course, ‘I Love a Piano.’ Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had ‘no place in American music – he is American music.’
