Westosha Central High School will be presenting a production of “George Washington Slept Here,” a comedy directed by Michael Klimzak, April 21, 22 and 23.

When Newton Fuller fulfills his dream of buying a colonial farm house in the country he drags his wife, Annabelle, and their daughter, Madge, out to rural Pennsylvania. They set up housekeeping in a wreck of a “fixer upper” with broken windows, falling plaster and holes in the floor. But area legend indicates George Washington slept there. While Newton and his family find life in the country is no bed of roses, audiences of all ages will enjoy this 1940s comedy with laughs and turn of events that will keep you entertained.

Join the Central High School performing arts department for the spring performance of “George Washington Slept Here”, written by George S Kaufman and Moss Hart. Performances are Friday, April 21 and Saturday April 22 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 23 at 2 p.m. at Central High School. All tickets are $8.
