Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe
May 23 all-day

camelot_sliderCreating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe showcases more than 70 intimate photographs and iconic images of President John F. Kennedy, his wife, Jacqueline, and their children, Caroline and John Jr. — photos that helped create the legend of the Kennedy presidency known as “Camelot.”

Lowe was Kennedy’s personal photographer from 1958 through his early years in the White House. His extraordinary access to Kennedy’s private and public life allowed him to capture events that others could not. His photographs document Kennedy’s rise to power, from his 1958 re-election campaign to the White House, along with intimate scenes of the Kennedys at home. The exhibit also explores how Lowe’s images were used in the media.

A large touch-screen monitor allows visitors to view more than two dozen of Lowe’s original contact sheets, including the editing marks that indicate the images he selected for publication in various newspapers and magazines. The exhibit also includes an original film about Jacques Lowe and the Kennedy family.

Children edge closer curious to see how this feat is being performed, parents accompany them, and all in the park enjoy this spectacular feat.

ComedySportz
May 23 @ 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm

ComedySportz is improv comedy, played as a sport.

ComedySportz is Philadelphia’s leading improv comedy show. Since 1993 ComedySportz has been entertaining fans with the fastest and funniest form of improv comedy ever seen. Two teams of improvisers vie for points in a hilarious competition by playing a series of improv games, similar to what yo may have seen on TVs Whose Line Is It Anyway? A referee governs the action, calling fouls and keeping the match moving at a blistering pace. The audience is always a part of the interactive show, and audience volunteers sometimes even wind up on stage!

Because everything is improvised, it’s never the same show twice. And it’s clean–appropriate for all ages. Every ComedySportz match is a unique and unforgettable event–laughs guaranteed! Come see why so many people come back to see us again and again.

Shows run 1 hour, 30 minutes with intermission. All seats are general admission. The box office opens 45 minutes prior to showtime. We recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to showtime to get the best seats. Ticket sales are cash or check-only at the theater
