Starring: Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson, Malcolm X, Jackie Kennedy and Hamilton’s Women
Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time at this ten-day – two-weekend festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family.
30 shows performed in costume by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. And almost all the shows are FREE.
Meet revolutionary people – hear their stories – ask them how their world changed.
- Duel wits with ALEXANDER HAMILTON
- Debate democracy with ANDREW JACKSON
- Witness the end of Camelot with JACKIE KENNEDY
- Speak out for human rights with MALCOLM X
- And like HAMILTON’S WOMEN (Schuyler Sisters Angelica, Eliza & Peggy) – be a part of the story.
There’s nothing like the experience outdoors under the Chautauqua tent or in a beautiful park on a summer evening. But if you like your Chautauqua experience indoors in air-conditioned comfort, we have that, too.
There will be great story-telling, lots to laugh about, and deep secrets revealed. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.
