The Cultural Arts Forum opens the 2012-2013 season at Neumann University on Thursday, September 13th at 1:30pm with “My Friend Jackie.” Impersonator Rene Goodwin weaves stories and experiences that helped mold Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis through the eyes of family friend, Candy Stanton.
The scene is the Kennedy’s Georgetown residence a week before the inauguration, when John F. Kennedy will take the oath of office to become the President of the United States, and Jackie will become First Lady. Jackie asked Candy Stanton to help her pack personal belongings to prepare for her move to the White House. Candy turns to the audience, her friends, to help the process, sharing more about Jackie and life inside the Kennedy household.
Rene Goodwin gives a fascinating performance about the behind the scenes life of one of America’s legendary first ladies in the Meagher Theater, located in the campus Life Center. Tickets are $7 for General Admission. Admission is free for Neumann students/staff and Cultural Arts Forum Members. Please contact Nicholas DiMarino at 610-558-5626 for more information.
