Written in 1963 by Haddonfield’s own Harry T. Kaufmann,The King’s Road follows the lives of Mary Hopkins, Joshua Cresson, Jonas Cattell and others as they discover patriotism, strengthen their faith and fall in love amidst the intrusion of the British and Hessian armies. With beautiful melodies like “Wonderland”, “Friendship Fire Company No. 1” and the spirited anthem “This is the Land Where Freedom Dwells”, The King’s Road is filled with singing, dancing, marching and merriment.

The King’s Road was first presented in 1964 as the final event of Haddonfield’s observance of New Jersey’s Tricentennial, to the enjoyment of thousands. The show was presented again late in 1975, in honor of the nation’s bicentennial the following year.  Now, in participation with the Haddonfield 300 celebration, The King’s Road will delight a new generation of audiences.  

Tickets for this not-to-be-missed production are only $10 and can be ordered online: Buy tickets online, or by calling our Box Office at (856) 429-8139. The show will be performed at the Haddon Fortnightly on Oct 3, 4 and 5 at 8pm, with a matinee performance on Oct 5 at 1pm.
