Voices of Elmwood Announces Performance Dates for 2017 Season

Voices of Elmwood is back for a tenth season here in Owensboro.  And here’s a look at this year’s schedule of events and performances.

A

Voices of Elmwood is a unique theatrical presentation that takes place inside Elmwood Cemetery.  It’s a “celebration of history designed to honor our region’s heritage” and does so by having local writers, actors and actresses recreate the lives of notable residents who were laid to rest in the cemetery.  It’s a way of resurrecting their stories and keeping those local legacies alive.  Because 2017 is Owensboro’s bicentennial year, this year’s presentation features some notable figures from Owensboro’s history who are not buried at Elmwood.

Voices of Elmwood performances begin at 6:00 p.m. each evening, with the last wagon leaving at 9:00 p.m. each night.  Elmwood tent shows, which are perfect for large church groups, supper clubs, tour buses or patrons preferring not to ride in the wagons, will be offered on October 5th, 6th and 7th and will begin at 6:00 p.m.

Todd Reynolds, Executive Director for T.W.O., will be directing this year’s series, which features ten different “voices” from Elmwood.

Elmwood Cemetery is located at 1300 Old Hartford Road, Owensboro, Kentucky, 42303 and parking is available on site.

Tickets are $18 (plus fees) per person, for both the wagon and tent shows and will go on sale Monday, August 7 at owensborotickets.com.  Group discounts are available for groups of ten or more.  Additional information is available by calling the Museum of Science and History at (270) 687-2732.
