A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale Is A New Musical Debuting At The Lincoln Ampitheatre [VIDEO]

President Abraham Lincoln’s time in Indiana has been dramatized in many forms for twenty-five years at Lincoln Ampitheatre in Perry County. When the ampitheatre’s construction was completed in 1987, the play Young Abe Lincoln was staged there for the first time. In 2009, LINCOLN: Upon the Altar of Freedom was produced in honor of Lincoln’s 200th birthday. Now a new two-act musical play, which will incorporate several of the area’s young actors, makes its World Premiere this weekend.

A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale is a brand new production from writer/director Ken Jones. It will run June 8th-June 30th on Wednesday through Saturday evenings with one Sunday matinee performance set for July 1st. In the video, Jones describes the concept of the new production.
