"Thank you for such an amazing visit yesterday!  You and Mrs. Lincoln gave such an incredible, rich, convincing and engaging performance. It was a such a special day for our 1st graders. One teacher summed it up well, 'I love the depth and meaningfulness the children are immersed in. The research and characterization is very powerful. We are lucky to have the enrichment.' Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you next year!!!"

"To put it succinctly, they were fabulous! Before they even arrived, Mr. Krebs worked closely with me to craft the most successful day. The reaction from the kids was awe mixed with laughter. Even with such a short amount of time, Michael and Debra were able to educate, entertain and thoughtfully answer all their questions."
 PTO, Deer Path Elementary, Lake Forest, IL
"They have performed for our fourth grade students for 16 years in a row and we hope to have them back again next year.  They did a fantastic job of recreating history right in our auditorium. They taught the students so much and kept them absolutely captivated throughout the entire performance. Our students and staff gave us wonderful feedback; we highly recommend With Lincoln Productions."

Visiting the Lincolns

A group of unexpected guests arrives at the Lincoln White House on the eve of the President's assassination and catches the First Family unawares. The Lincolns entertain as best they can with anecdotes and yarns. Though relieved that the Civil War is over, Mary is overcome with grief from the loss of two of her young sons. To comfort her, Abraham vows to continue the struggle for which so much was sacrificed. Witness the touching humor and deep love shared between this legendary couple. In the end, they both confront the losses in their own lives.
This program is recommended for indoor staged special events, college, banquet, and civic programming.
Suitable for all ages.
