Lakewood, N.J., October 13, 2017—On Monday, October 30, Sal St. George of St. George Living History Productions will bring actress/comedienne Goldie Hawn to life in Georgian Court’s Little Theatre on the historic Lakewood campus in a program entitled “Goldie Hawn: From Flower Power to Power Player.”
When America was introduced to Goldie Hawn in the late 1960s as the wide-eyed, scatter-brained character on the NBC-TV variety show, Laugh-In, it was love at first sight. Although she had been working as a go-go dancer, Hawn was a trained ballerina and actress. She started dancing at age 10, and played Juliet at age 16 in a 1961 Virginia Shakespeare Company production. After Laugh-In, Hawn became a major film star, winning an Academy Award for her role in Cactus Flower (1969) and forming her own production company to create the iconic role of Private Benjamin (1980).
Her Star Story will be presented at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are required for admission and can be ordered in advance at http://georgian.edu/event/star-stories-goldie-hawn-from-flower-power-to-power-player/. The cost is $10 per person in advance and $15 at the door.
On Friday, January 5, St. George will present “More Dining With The Stars,” a program that will tell behind-the-scenes stories about well-known comedy teams such as Dan Rowan and Dick Martin, the Ritz Brothers, Marty Allen and Steve Rossi, the Smothers Brothers, and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The evening will also include a multicourse dinner. Tickets, which are required, will cost $43, and are available here: http://georgian.edu/event/dining-with-the-stars-part-ii/. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m.

About Sal St. George
For the last 35 years, St. George Living History Productions has produced historical theater for many of the country’s leading history museums. The founder and creator, Sal St. George, brings history to life by telling the stories behind the story and creating programs that enthusiastically engross audiences.
St. George’s office in Medford, New York, is filled with biographies, which he has been collecting since childhood. He once told The New York Times about a research paper he wrote on Abbott and Costello when he was a student at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. St. George managed to track down Bud Abbott, who invited him to visit him in Los Angeles. St. George went during semester break, intending to stay for three days. He didn’t leave for three weeks because he was having so much fun meeting Abbott’s friends—people such as the Andrews Sisters, Steve Allen, and Joe Besser, one of the Three Stooges. Prior to founding St. George Productions in 1995, St. George toured the country for 14 years in “Frontier Follies,” an old-time vaudeville show, and worked as a consultant for theme parks, producing shows for Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens, and Silver Dollar City.
