St Augustines Colonial Quarter Features Comedy Show from the 16th Century Every Weekend
07.10.13 10:11 AM
A live-action musical/comedy show inspired by the city’s days of yore, Colonial Crew Revue is an all new production inside St Augustine’s newest attraction – The Colonial Quarter. The show is sure to give St. Augustine the one and only production of its kind!
Taking place on Colonial Quarter’s lantern-lit amphitheater beneath the oaks in the attraction’s 16th century Spanish garrison town section with complimentary refreshments included, the show forms the perfect union of entertainment and education. Featured in this hilarious production are the transformation of dramatic moments of that period into a high-energy, humor-filled showcase of St. Augustine’s rich Colonial history.
The Colonial Quarter is conveniently-located just outside the inn’s door. You are literally able to see a side view of this exciting attraction from our front entrance! The newly-renovated St. Augustine attraction has received numerous hurrahs from locals as well as visitors since its grand opening and we are excited to announce the introduction of a one-of-a-kind production inside this historical masterpiece.
