Special Event: Meet Catherine of Aragon

Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.

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.  By 1525, Henry VIII was infatuated with Anne Boleyn and dissatisfied that his marriage to Catherine had produced no surviving sons, leaving their daughter, the future Mary I of England, as heir presumptive at a time when there was no established precedent for a woman on the throne. He sought to have their marriage annulled, setting in motion a chain of events that led to England's schism with the Catholic Church.
Craig Schermer’s portrayal of Catherine of Aragon is sure to be informative and interesting.  You will recall that Mr. Schermer dazzled us with his portrayals of Florence Kling Harding and Eleanor Roosevelt.  He is an excellent actor and expert in transforming himself from a man into the role of an historic female.
A reception with light refreshments will follow his hour-long presentation and give attendees an opportunity to meet Mr. Schermer and ask questions.  Reserved seat tickets are $20 and may be purchased at our Box Office or online.
Proceeds will be used toward operating costs of the 2019-2020 season.
