The cannon is loaded and waiting for anyone brave enough to light the fuse! Former Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell will lead the charge on June 22, 2017, by firing the cannon
The cannon is loaded and waiting for anyone brave enough to light the fuse!
Former Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell will lead the charge on June 22, 2017, by firing the cannon at Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia. Actors, dignitaries and guests will also get the chance to fire-off a shot from the cannon as Live Patriots mingle with guests in the Colonial Beer Garden.
Imagine the production crew filming a Revolutionary War soldier fighting to hold the fort, as you sip a cocktail and listen to the band while the sun dips into the horizon along the Delaware River. Proceeds from the event will go towards the production of Molly, a feature film about the legendary Molly Pitcher, which will be filmed in the Philadelphia area.
It takes a lot of actors, scores of soldiers, and even more cocktails to make a movie. Last summer, Philadelphia and Delaware County actors and reenactors created the sizzle reel for Molly. Now it’s time for the rest of us to do our part. Eat, drink and be merry on June 22! There will also be a silent auction, raffle and a chance to explore the historic fort, where spirits reportedly still roam.
The production team will be on hand to talk about the film, which highlights a woman’s patriotic rebellion during the nation’s fight for independence. They are writer and producer Brigette ReDavid, Director Jon Barden, Director of Photography Myron Parran, Line Producer Brian David Cange and Associate Producer Karin Knebl.
Tickets are $25 for regular guests and includes food, music, a cocktail and tastings; $125 for VIP guests and includes dinner, drinks, a gift, and a family membership for a year to Fort Mifflin.
