Light & Life in the Colonies Tour, Old Barracks Museum

Tuesday November 20, 2018
6:45 PM

Tour the Old Barracks Museum in the evening twilight to discover first-hand how light and darkness affected daily activities, work, and entertainment in the 18th century. The Museum will open at 6:45 PM and tours will begin at 7 PM on Tuesday, November 13 & Tuesday, November 20.

Availability of light varied among social class and rank. This 45 minute tour is not simply "Barracks-by-night", but instead focuses on life after sunset before electricity. See how access to light was dictated by social standing and rank by comparing the candles available in the soldiers' quarters and the officers' house. The tailor's shop in the museum will show how the work day was impacted by sunlight.

Admission is $10; $5 for members of the Old Barracks Association. Tours are limited to 15 people per tour. For more information, visit www.barracks.org or call 609-396-1776.

Hot Hollywood actor Andrew Rally, star of a recently cancelled TV series, arrives in New York to play “Hamlet” in Central Park and moves into the outrageously Gothic Greenwich Village apartment once owned by John Barrymore. While Andy loves the city, the theater and stardom … he hates “Hamlet.” He is ready to flee to L.A. when the ghost of Barrymore unexpectedly appears. The laughs are non-stop as Barrymore takes his would-be successor under his wing — tutoring him in Shakespearean acting, life and love.
