Share0 SharesFrontier Culture Museum in Staunton, VA, Lunch and Matinee Date:  Aug. 13, 2022 Location:  Staunton, VA Time:  9am (Leave Woodlake by 7am) Length of program:  8-hour day plus travel (roughly 2 hours each way) Description of trip and events:  Step back in time with this day trip to Staunton, Virginia.  We will visit the Frontier Culture Museum first at 9 am.  It is a self-guided walking tour that is a living history museum that tells the story of the people who migrated from the Old World to America and the life they created in the Shenandoah Valley. Then we will head to eat lunch at the Firkin Pie Company at 12 noon.  They serve made-from-scratch sweet and savory pies for lunch, dinner and dessert.  Our final stop will be to the American Shakespeare Center’s Blackfriars Playhouse with a play starting at 2pm called the PassOver.  Next stop—Woodlake. Frontier Culture Museum-Self-guided tours utilize walking paths and trails to allow Museum guests to visit all 11 permanent exhibits. You’ll enjoy “living history” as communicated through costumed interpreters in both the Old World and American sections of the Museum. We recommend allowing 3-4 hours to see everything by foot.  Shuttle carts run continuously in the event you want a lift. Golf carts can be rented for a nominal fee.  The entire Museum loop is approximately two miles. The main paths of both the Old World and New World loops are paved, making secure travel possible for walkers, wheelchairs, powerchairs, and our rentable golf carts. Certain sites, such as the West African, English, 1700s Settlement farms, and the schoolhouse, are accessed by gravel pathways. Others, such as the Irish, German, Eastern Woodland Indian, 1820 and 1850 American farms, are accessed by paved or brick pathways. Visitor restrooms in each loop are accessed via paved paths. The museum does, however, include gardens, pastures, and other activity areas that are only accessible via lawn. Firkin Pie Company-serves made-from-scratch sweet and savory pies for lunch, dinner and dessert, Wednesday-Friday and Saturdays we offer a selection of breakfast pies. PassOver-This compelling new drama was a sensation on Broadway in 2021. In Pass Over, Moses and Kitch hang out on the corner – talking trash, passing the time, and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land a stranger wanders into their space and derails their plans. Emotional and lyrical, Pass Over crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, exposing the unquestionable human spirit of young Black men looking for a way out. A provocative riff on Waiting for Godot and the Book of Exodus, Pass Over is a rare piece of politically charged theater by a bold new American voice. Cost per person: (Depending on ages of participants and seat availability at the theatre) $36 to $63 per person for Matinee.  Transportation cost of $132.00 + tip.  And costs for the museum are: Adult: $12.00 Senior: $ 9.00 Student (ages 13-college): $11.00 Child (ages 6-12): $7.00 Children Under Age 6: Free Register with Jenny by July 1.  Must have a minimum of 14 people to attend the event.
