What is Chautauqua? It's History Alive!

If you like something that holds you spellbound, entertains you and incidentlally teaches you - then you're going to love Chautauqua. We take you on an astonishing journey into the past, where historic figures appear on stage, and you question them - no holds barred!  You laugh with Mark Twain, get arrested with Rosa Parks, walk the Trail of Tears, and debate the Constitution with its makers.  It's interactive theater performed by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. 

And you, the audience, are always a part of the show. You laugh . . . you cry . . . you just flat out have a good time. And to top it off - the shows are FREE!
