Go behind the scenes of history during Chautauqua in the Park. Held on the grounds of the Tulsa Historical Society & Museum, this thought-provoking program offers multiple days of workshops, living history events and nightly entertainment.
This year's Chautauqua theme is "Surviving the Sixties." Five talented scholars will deliver entertaining, insightful and educational historical presentations and workshops. Each scholar has extensively researched the famous, infamous or obscure visionary they portray, to realistically recount the lifetime experiences of these remarkable figures in period costumes.
This year, scholars will portray writer Allen Ginsberg, novelist Christopher Isherwood, performer Cass Elliot, psychologist Timothy Leary and singer-songwriter John Lennon.
Workshop-goers frequently bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy during breaks. Each night, a different scholar will give a presentation in character followed by a Q&A session from the audience, first in character, then as a scholar.
Local musicians will entertain the audience briefly before each evening's performance. A variety of snacks will be available for purchase. Make an evening of it and enjoy the ambiance of a summer night under the tent while immersing yourself in history.
