The Woodman Museum is proud to announce its annual Veterans Day ceremony, to be held on Sunday, November 12, 2017.

Reenactors of all wars, from the Revolutionary War to modern conflicts, will gather at the Woodman to honor our nation’s veterans and those military men and women still engaged in active service across the world.  Hosted annually, the event, organized in part by WWII enthusiast Charlie Robinson, proprietor of Elite Hobbies in Dover, attracts area veterans and their families and will feature live cannon and musket firing, antique military vehicles and memorabilia, and people in full battle dress. All branches of the service will be represented. Reenactors and enthusiasts will be on hand to answer any questions about the history of America’s wartime involvement.

The set-up for the event begins at 9:30 AM. The event runs from noon until 4pm and will be held on the grounds of the Woodman Museum (182 Central Ave., Dover, NH 03820). A rain date is scheduled for November 19.

Night at the Museum V Casting Call

Call for Cast Members: Woodman Museum’s “Night at the Museum” event returns in October

For its 5th annual re-enactment event, the Woodman Museum will present “More Voices from the Cemetery” on October
14-15, 2017 on the grounds of Dover’s picturesque and historic Pine Hill Cemetery.
Approximately 60 cast members are being sought to act, lead tours, or provide event assistance during this 2-day
production when dozens of famous (or infamous) Dover residents will rise from the dead at their gravesites to entertain
you with details from their most interesting lives! All acting roles are for adults, but no acting experience is required! We
are seeking individuals with an interest in bringing history to life, and in helping Dover’s oldest museum, now in its 101 st
year.
In two dozen scenes, laid out all over Pine Hill Cemetery, history will come to life in October during the 90-minute
escorted tours of this burial ground that dates from 1731. More than 40 noted, nefarious, or notorious Dover citizens
will come to life beside their headstones, regaling visitors with tales of mirth, woe, and amazement! Among the
residents lifting their voices in the cemetery will be sea captains, business leaders, soldiers, politicians, ministers, lost
lovers, and even a famous opera singer!
For those thinking about participating, there will be a Cast Orientation Session on Thursday, August 24 at 6:30pm at the
Museum’s Keefe House (15 Summer St.). You are invited to meet the production staff, ask questions, and talk with
others who’ve participated in previous “Night at the Museum” events. After the orientation, you can decide if you’d like
to sign on to the cast as a character, as a Tour Guide, or help out behind the scenes.
Tickets for “More Voices from the Cemetery” will go on sale in September at the Woodman Museum and on its website.
This is a family-friendly tour, suitable for all ages. Prices are $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12. For additional
