VERN FRYKHOLM PORTRAYS
With Vern Frykholm’s portrayal of our first Commander-in-Chief and President of the United States, you’ll find yourself standing in history!
Vern brings a real characterization of George Washington to a variety of venues – from the Northwest Colonial Festival each August near Sequim, Washington, to classrooms across the State – to private parties and groups who would like an entertaining way to learn more about this important historical man and the times in which he lived and worked.
Vern Frykholm Jr. began portraying Washington in February, 2012 and has made over 300 appearances to more than 20,000 people. He has talked to students at public and private schools, service clubs, libraries, business and church groups, and regional conferences. He has been at the George Washington Inn in Sequim, WA for both the Lavender Festival in July and the Northwest Colonial Festival in August for four years.
Please welcome His Excellency George Washington, who is:
“First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS disarm’s students and audiences of their preconceived notions about early American history by engaging their eyes, their ears and their emotions. We raise the dead, by portraying those early Americans in the middle of their struggles and watch them work their way through oppression and tyranny to construct a radical new way for people to govern themselves.
We primarily present in-person, on-site presentations with questions, but are currently adding a series of 6-10 minute videos designed for the classroom, that allows time for zoom questions of the portrayers at the end of the video.
