“Presidents and Their First Ladies, dramatically speaking” is the creation of the veteran acting and writing team of husband and wife, William and Sue Wills. These troupers of 44 years in theater and now over 9,000 performances together are in their 26th year of bringing to life the stories of 35 different Presidential couples. One patron proclaimed,” Congress should declare them a living national monument.”
Mr. and Mrs. Wills have performed in 36 of our 50 states and given over 30 performances at the nation’s Presidential sites. They are a true working team with William researching and creating the scripts while Sue edits his work and creates the costumes, many of her own design. They are not “impersonators”, but hope that their costumes, dialects, and demeanors will help recreate these historical characters.
In 2013, the couple created an IRS recognized non-profit organization, Presidents Project Inc. which has donated over $22,000.00 for organizations which help wounded soldiers and their families.
With their “Presidents and First Ladies” program, William and Sue hope that by presenting the personal side of our first couples, they will become more than just names read about in history books.
This event will take place February 20, 2022, from 3:00 P.M. - 5:00 P.M. at The Emerson Center located at 1690 27th Avenue, Vero Beach, FL 32960
