Take a stroll through Old City Philly for magic and mystery, inspired by history! You will visit several historic locations each of which is the basis for a comedic and mind-bending performance. In the program are:
- “The True Story of Betsy Ross and the American Flag”
- “If I Could Save a Penny in a Bottle”
- “Say Hello to my Little Benjamin Franklin”…..and much, much, more!
You will never see Philly the same way again!

The show is outdoors and weather dependent. Please contact 267-566-8897 to determine if the show will be performed if the weather looks sketchy.
We meet in front of the Bourse (near 5th and Chestnut Streets). Please come 15 minutes early and use the bathrooms at the Bourse if needed. The walk starts promptly and there are no bathroom breaks which means you’d have to split off and find you way back to the group.
