"The True Story of Betsy Ross and the American Flag"

"If I Could Save a Penny in a Bottle"

"Say Hello to my Little Benjamin Franklin"... and much, much more!  You will never see Philadelphia the same way again!

Audience Instructions


The show is outdoors and weather dependent.  Please call 267-312-6029 to determine if the show will be performed if the weather looks sketchy.  All decisions will be made at least 1 hour before showtime. (Tickets are fully refundable if canceled due to weather).

We meet behind the Bourse (near 4th and Ranstead Streets).  Please come 15 minutes early to check-in, and use the bathrooms at the Bourse if needed. The walk starts promptly and there are no bathroom breaks which means you'd have to split off and find your way back to the group.
