"The Village on Canadaway," a revue about the history of the Village of Fredonia, will be presented at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House on Saturday, Oct. 23, at 8 p.m. Admission is free, with donations being accepted to support the Opera House.
The revue is a series of vignettes from Fredonia's past, from early settlers through the growth of SUNY Fredonia. The story is told by individuals, some of whom were part of the village's history and some who are typical of those who lived here. Also part of the production is music of the historical periods, with several audience sing-along opportunities. The cast is local.
"The Village on Canadaway" is sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church of Fredonia as part of its bicentennial. The congregation chose to celebrate its birthday through activities that would show appreciation to the community which nurtured its 200 years. All donations made at the revue will go to the 1891 Fredonia Opera House.
