Holgate to present A. Lincoln in single performance at Lakewood

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Steve Holgate will present A. Lincoln, a two-act play which brings Abraham Lincoln to life, on Nov. 19 for Lakewood Theatre Company.

Lakewood Theatre Company will present a one-night performance of “A. Lincoln” Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. This one-person play, featuring Steve Holgate in the lead role, captures the life and times of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States of America.

The performance date of Nov. 19 is significant in that it is also the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.

“A. Lincoln,” conceived, written and performed by Holgate, brings Abraham Lincoln to life in a two-act production through letters, speeches, newspaper stories and conversation.

Critics have lauded Holgate’s performance as an intimate portrayal that personally conveys the spirit and laconic nature of the man.

A Civil War buff since childhood, Holgate has been portraying Lincoln onstage for more than 13 years in libraries, schools and historic venues throughout the U.S. and the world.

Tickets to the production are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Order online at lakewood-center.org or call 503-635-3901.
