What is Chautauqua?
- It's History Alive!
If you like something that holds you spellbound, entertains you and incidentally 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! 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!
