Past Events

Queen Victoria - 2024

Queen and guard

The Fleming Center at The New London Barn Playhouse 


In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria's diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took her role as monarch in a time of great expansion seriously. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Through her children she left a royal legacy; an era bears her name. 


Join us Sunday, January 21st at 2pm at The Fleming Center at The New London Barn Playhouse as Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders. Tea and cookies will be served after the performance.  

Abraham and
Mary Lincoln - 2023

Wood as Lincolns Concord

Whipple Hall, New London

Historical actors Steve and Sharon Wood portray Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln in this theatrical presentation focusing on the challenges the first family faced during a turbulent time in our country's history. The production begins with Mary Todd Lincoln mourning her husband's death. President Lincoln then appears, visible to the audience but only heard by Mary as if in a memory recalled, and they begin a dialogue about their lives.
