The Nevada Humanities Chautauqua

Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater, Bartley Ranch Regional Park
June 24, 2013 -June 27, 2013


Chautauqua is an entertaining history theater in which audiences have an opportunity to interact with infamous people from the past. 

Nevada Humanities Chautauqua is one of the longest-running Chautauqua festivals in the nation and is a living history program in which performers, in costume and in character, bring historical figures to life in theatrical monologues. Chautauqua provides dramatic insights into the people and events that have shaped our nation.
 
The weeklong celebration features workshops, roundtable discussions, and ticketed evening theatrical performances. This year’s evening performances explore the theme “No Dream Deferred,” and feature performances of legendary characters including Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Henry Ford, Langston Hughes and Julia Morgan. 
The June 24 evening program is free and will feature performances by the Young Chautauquans who have participated in Nevada Humanities’ 2013 Great Basin Young Chautauqua program.
