The Library Prepares for a Royal Visit

The Friends of the Case Memorial Library announce the upcoming visit of “Her Majesty,  Queen Elizabeth II.”  On Saturday, May 18 at 2 pm, Sheryl Faye will give another memorable performance as she portrays the late English Queen. 

Before the program the Friends will hold their Annual Meeting at 1 pm when there will be a brief business report, election of Board members, and the awarding of the Lucy Scillia Scholarship to a deserving graduating Orange senior.  

Sheryl Faye graduated from Emerson College with a BFA in Acting.  She has received many awards for both stage and film and has performed all across the United States.  Sheryl Faye returns to Orange by popular demand.  She has performed other historical presentations for the Friends over the last years and always leaves her audience wanting more.  Sheryl becomes the character she is portraying in looks, words, actions, and costumes.

Queen Elizabeth II was the longest reigning monarch of the United Kingdom.  She began her reign at age twenty-five and ruled through the many challenges to her kingdom before she died at age ninety-six.  Like all mothers, she experienced the happiness, tragedies, and disappointments of family members as well.  Through it all, she was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, a lover of horses and corgis, a dedicated Head of the Commonwealth, and a popular working queen.  

The Queen requests the pleasure of your company at Tea after the performance and asks that you RSVP.  Please call 203.891.2170 or visit   Guests are asked to dress to meet the Queen.  A curtsy is optional.
