Catherine of Aragon was Queen of England from June 1509 until May 1533 as the first wife of King Henry VIII; she was previously Princess of Wales as the wife of Henry’s elder brother, Arthur.
The daughter of Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon, Catherine was three years old when she was betrothed to Arthur, Prince of Wales. They married in 1501, but Arthur died five months later. Catherine subsequently married Arthur’s younger brother, the recently ascended Henry VIII, in 1509.
Catherine will be portrayed by Craig Schermer, a graduate of John Carroll University with a major in Russian Imperial History. He has studied the First Ladies and other women of historical significance most of his life and spent nearly ten years as the historian for the National First Ladies’ Library in Canton, Ohio.
Mr. Schermer’s charming and informative portrayal of Catherine of Aragon will be held on Sunday, February 16, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. A reception with light refreshments will follow his hour-long presentation and give attendees an opportunity to meet Mr. Schermer and ask questions.

Heroes is the story of Gustave, Philippe and Henri who are living in a French retired soldiers’ home.

Our Red Barn Youth Theater will present the play, Jingle Bells Jury, and our Red Barn Youth Show Choir will present a concert of seasonal and holiday music.
Jingle Bells Jury by Jay Moriarty is a delightful court room romp, during which a boy, who seems to have lost the Christmas spirit, is brought before the court in an attempt to rekindle his enthusiasm for the holiday. And the audience, who acts as the jury, helps in the proceedings! Our cast features Molly Adomaites, Fiona Burke, Lily Conroy, Adaline Dietrich, Savannah Doty, Madison Garver, Jake Gilbride, Olivia Heberlein, Cici Hijaz, Jake Hunter, Avery Junkins, Scarlett Loach, Juan Mendoza, Audrey Morrison, Reilly O’Donnell, Imani Price, Nia Price, Anna Rendziak, Ava Ronan, Brielle Rugar, Ricky Schuler, Amanda Shi, Charlie Shi, and John Paul Zorc.
Our Youth Show Choir will offer up their beautiful voices in the second part of our show and then they will ask the audience to assist them in singing traditional Christmas carols. Choir members include Sarah Kamrass, Ava Ronan, Camryn Stewart, Genevieve Vancisin and Lola Weston.
