The Travelling Lantern Theatre Company will perform “The Industrious Mr. Franklin: Lightning, Wit and Statesmanship” on Saturday, Nov. 19, at 10:30 a.m. at Kingston Library, 55 Franklin St., Kingston.
The event is part of the library’s Super Saturdays Performance Series.
Youngsters will meet the intrepid inventor, quipping author, productive scientist and founding father Benjamin Franklin. They will travel with him, meet his friends, help him in his work and learn all about the courageous and diligent man who tamed electricity with a kite and a key.
This new play is a fascinating and humorous romp with one of America’s most endearing historical characters. Admission is free. Call the library at (845) 331-0507, ext. 7, for more information.
