Bayonets Before Daybreak Recreates 1813 Capture of Fort Niagara

A special walking tour set for Sunday morning, December 19 will follow in the footsteps of British soldiers who captured Fort Niagara exactly 197 years ago. The tour will be led by a uniformed War of 1812 soldier who will walk participants through the daring night attack that delivered Fort Niagara from U.S. into British hands. The soldier will also give tour participants a first-hand look at Fort Niagara's American garrison, including uniforms and equipment of U.S. War of 1812 soldiers.

The tour begins at 7:00 am, just hours after the actual assault captured the Fort on the morning of December 19, 1813. Following the tour, participants will be served breakfast at the Fort Niagara Officers Club. Attendance is limited to the first twenty people who register. Cost is $18.13 per person and must be paid in advance by calling (716) 745-7611.

Lewiston Is “Home for the Holidays” in Play Premiere

Theatre in the Mist, the award-winning community theater group based in Lewiston, NY, will host the world premiere of “Home for the Holidays” on Friday, December 3, 2010. Five additional performances are scheduled through December 12.

Local writer and director Jason R. Bek introduces audiences to the zany Kringle family and their holiday surprise at the family farmhouse in Lewiston, complete with sing-a-long, snowball fights, a unique Christmas Eve feast, favorite Christmas carols and songs, and the worst blizzard since 1977.

Bek’s debut as playwright is a personal one; much of the story is drawn from his own experiences and those of cast members. “I wanted this play to capture the feel-good spirit of a vintage holiday special, with all the flavor of our real-life celebrations. It was fun to bring some of my own stories to the stage, as well as family traditions shared by cast members. We know they’ll be something for everyone in the audience to relate to!”
