Welcome aboard. As friends and family of the deceased, Howard Llewellyn, you have all been invited to pay tribute to his memory. He loved the tales of pirates gone by, so he bought this boat and named it The Bloody Bucket. We know that he loved to dress up like a pirate, calling himself Captain Greybeard, and playing games aboard his ship. Now he’s gone - the victim of a tragic accident. Poor Howard was partying a little too hard, had a little too much "grog," and fell overboard. Before he died, he left a will, and you have all been invited to the reading. In keeping with the festive spirit of Howard Llewellyn, and especially since its Halloween, it was his last wish that you all come in costume.


Please join us in the fun while contributing to such a worthy cause as The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This month the Museum will feature artifacts highlighting the history of the Academy of Music, now the Academy of Fine Arts. Billed as “the prettiest opera house in the state and among the prettiest in the entire South,” the Academy of Music officially opened its doors on February 1, 1905.
From the beginning, local acts and legendary performers crossed its stage including Mary Pickford, John Phillip Sousa, Anna Pavlova, George M. Cohan, and Will Rogers. After suffering a major fire in 1911, the Academy was rebuilt on an even grander scale. Thriving during the golden age of theatre, business began to decline in the 1920s as live shows were replaced by motion pictures. After difficult financial years, it closed in 1958.



Almost immediately after it closed, there was an interest in preserving and restoring the theatre. In 1969 the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places—the first Lynchburg building to receive such an honor.
Objects on display will include historic photographs, programs, posters, tickets, and early 20th century theatrical costumes. The artifacts will remain on display throughout the weekend. The Museum is open Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday noon-4pm.

Death of a Salesman

ONE OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN PLAYS EVER WRITTEN

Arthur Miller\'s Pulitzer Prize winning play of 1949 is widely considered to be a cornerstone of American theatre. A caustic attack on the "American Dream" of materialism, Death of a Salesman is a three-act play (two acts and a "requiem"), centering on the main character, Willy Loman. A failing salesman, Willy cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the "American Dream" kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre..

Death of a Salesman

ONE OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN PLAYS EVER WRITTEN

Arthur Miller\\\\\'s Pulitzer Prize winning play of 1949 is widely considered to be a cornerstone of American theatre. A caustic attack on the \"American Dream\" of materialism, Death of a Salesman is a three-act play (two acts and a \"requiem\"), centering on the main character, Willy Loman. A failing salesman, Willy cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the \"American Dream\" kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre..

Death of a Salesman

ONE OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN PLAYS EVER WRITTEN

Arthur Miller\'s Pulitzer Prize winning play of 1949 is widely considered to be a cornerstone of American theatre. A caustic attack on the "American Dream" of materialism, Death of a Salesman is a three-act play (two acts and a "requiem"), centering on the main character, Willy Loman. A failing salesman, Willy cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the "American Dream" kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre..
