Event Description

Roebling: The Story of the Brooklyn Bridge brings to the stage the human drama surrounding the herculean construction effort and immense personal challenges faced by the Roebling Family in their commitment to building the Brooklyn Bridge. In constructing this true American Icon, John Roebling and his son Washington persevered against all odds, despite political opposition and personal health tragedies. But when adversity called into question the success of the project, it is Emily Roebling who challenged the accepted role of women to become the culminating force in completing the bridge. This is truly a story of innovation, dedication, perseverance and family.

Shows Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm. Tickets $20 adults, $18 children and seniors. On-site parking is available at the Kelsey Theatre. There will be a special opening night gala. A lively talk-back discussion follows all performances.
