Circle Presents is a presenting series targeting school and family audiences with performances running from October through April. The goals of Circle Presents include exposing more young people to the arts and presenting the highest caliber artistic performances to schools and family at an affordable price.

It is April 30th, 1789, inauguration day for the first President of the United States, George Washington. He is both nervous and exhausted having been up all night worrying about this new position of leadership. After all, there has never been a President before, and his leadership skills have been limited to the military. He begins to doze off. In this dream state, he is visited by King Charlemagne, Cleopatra and Confucius. Presented by Face to Face Productions, each of these characters shares their leadership qualities and philosophies with George. With the help of these leaders, George is able to better understand how to lead a nation of the people, by the people and for the people in this musical comedy. Ticket to performance includes entry to permanent exhibits
