Show on Kennedy’s last days will play in Hanover theater

A one-man show with assistance from voice-over actors, period photos, and news recordings from the 1960s will offer a stirring remembrance of a beloved president in the last days of his life.

Kennedy, America’s 35th president, was reflecting on the challenges of the past on Nov. 21, 1963, as he dictated a speech about the experiences that he and his brother Joseph Jr. faced during World War II. “We in this country are, by destiny rather than choice, the watchmen on the walls of world freedom,” Kennedy said in one section of the talk.
