The Adventures of Benjamin Franklin

The Adventures of Benjamin Franklin


Scientist, Inventor, Author, Ambassador, Printer, Postmaster, Philanthropist, Patriot: Benjamin Franklin has even been called "the First American". In this original, interactive one-man show, one of the world's greatest statesmen and authors weaves together history, civics, science, and humor by recounting the story of his life. Dr. Franklin (professional actor/historian J.T. Turner) discusses his challenging youth in Boston, his days as a printer and writer in Philadelphia, and his adventures as an inventor, philanthropist, diplomat, and hero of the American Revolution. This show is particularly relevant to both STE and HSS curriculum, and of course, character development.
