Georgian Court University, Lakewood, is ringing in the spring with teatime and a show.
The historic campus’ Gould Mansion is currently open to the public with “Annie Oakley” – a performance that includes a tea luncheon as the dramatic background of the sharpshooter comes to life.
Discovered at age 15, Phoebe Ann Moses, whose skill at shooting led her to star in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, is better known by her stage name Annie Oakley (1860–1926). The one-time New Jersey resident became a national celebrity, thanks in part to her time in the Wild West show. She won numerous medals for her marksmanship, performed for royalty and remains a legendary figure of the American West.
Teas will take place at 11:30 a.m. on the following dates: May 5, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19, 30, and 31; June 5, 6, 9, 12, 13, and 14 (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays). Tickets are $45 per person, which includes the performance and tea luncheon. Tickets must be purchased online in advance; no tickets will be sold at the door. To purchase tickets, visit georgian.edu/events. For groups of 20 or more, call 732-987-2263 for discount pricing.[[In-content Ad]]
