About this Event

In 1812 Louisa Fatio, just 15 years old , barely escaped the Seminole Indians when they destroyed her family's beautiful New Switzerland plantation on the St. Johns River. Frantically searching for safety throughout the wilderness of Florida the family first endures the bloody Patriots’ War only to see their new house destroyed by a hurricane. Next they sought haven in Fernandina until their home burned to the ground and invading Pirates captured the town. Fleeing once more the Fatios returned and rebuilt New Switzerland Plantation where Louisa becomes its charming hostess. What happened next? Join us.

“I have researched, written and performed original historical dramas throughout Florida and the east coast for the past twenty years. I perform for historical societies, museums, fundraisers, government events, private parties, cruise ships as well as Road Scholar programs and many more. Each show is historically accurate, very entertaining and elaborately costumed! History and drama are my passions. My goal is to educate through entertaining. “ Dianne

Social hour at 6:00. The performance begins at 7:00.
