Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time at this ten-day / two-weekend festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family. And don’t miss these two very special performances featuring the three sisters so much in Alexander Hamilton’s life.
The Schuyler sisters, Angelica, Eliza, and Peggy were the daughters of the wealthy Philip Schuyler, Revolutionary War general and later a U.S. senator. And they were certainly high society women. They dressed in the latest fashions and were courted by the most powerful men. From glittering inaugural balls to bloody street riots, amidst the powder keg of the early days of the American Revolution, the Schuyler sisters are at the center of it all – including political treachery and scandal.
They and our other Founding Mothers could not vote or own property, but they were fervently patriotic and passionate women whose tireless pursuits on behalf of their families – and their country – proved just as crucial to the forging of a new nation as the rebellion that established it.
Although best known by the men they married, Hamilton’s wife and sisters-in-law were unmistakably Revolutionary.
Leslie Goddard portrays all three very different women – without ever leaving the stage.
Don’t miss your opportunity to see Angelica, Eliza & Peggy ONLY at these two venues:
• Sunday | June 16 from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm, an ASL Sign Interpreted show at Hartness Performing Arts Center at Christ Church Episcopal School, 245 Cavalier Dr, Greenville, SC 29607 (Off Mauldin Rd between S Pleasantburg and Fairforest Way near Conestee Park.
