Commissioned for Lexington Children’s Theatre 

 

Get ready to step back in time and immerse yourself in the life of one of America's most legendary figures - President Abraham Lincoln. This biographical play delves deep into the personal and political life of the 16th President of the United States, as told through his own words and the words of those who knew him best. But what's truly unique about this performance is that every actor takes on the role of Lincoln at some point during the play, showcasing how we all "keep" Mr. Lincoln alive by continuing to explore his story and the timeless ideals he embodied. This captivating and thought-provoking play is a must-see for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of one of America's greatest leaders.
