Chautauqua Theatre

Historical Theatre Like You’ve Never Seen 

What is Chautauqua?

Chautauqua is a special type of theatre that brings different figures from our history to life, literally. Since 1992, The Kentucky Humanities Society has brought to life more than 70 people from Kentucky’s past – both famous and unknown: allowing us all a chance to meet characters such as as Coloniel Sanders, Abraham Lincoln, Aunt Jemimah and Daniel Boone in a way that we could have never imagined.

 

The current Kentucky Chautauqua cast includes 25 figures from Kentucky’s rich and colorful history. From William Wells Brown’s struggle for freedom and John Marshall Harlan’s role as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, to Alice Lloyd’s struggle to bring education to Appalachia and Jean Ritchie’s musical legacy, Kentucky Chautauqua offers something for every classroom and community group.
