Local playwright, actor and artist Lee Weaver presents “Piercing the Darkness”, a one-act play. He portrays three Light Keepers at the St. Augustine Lighthouse; Captain Bob, Captain Baxter and Tour Guide Dave.

The lightkeepers take theatergoers up the spiraling 219 steps to the top of the St. Augustine Lighthouse.  On the upward journey, they share an incredible amount of history.

Captain Bob tells us about Ponce and Pedro, selling water from the Fountain of Youth, pirates and piracy jokes, the discovery of coquina and the first lighthouse. He teaches all a song, “Come Up The Steps of The Lighthouse With Me”.

Captain Baxter, USCG, elaborates on the Fresnel Lens, the deterioration of The Light Station, its rescue by The Junior Service League of St. Augustine and other historical tidbits.

Last of all, Volunteer Guide Dave wraps up this novel, humorous, historically correct, one-man show with more exciting stories about our magnificent National Landmark.
