Here are more details–including ticket information–courtesy of the LIncoln Amphitheatre:
LINCOLN CITY, IND.—A staged production honoring President Lincoln’s Indiana boyhood years runs annually during the month of June.
The outdoor musical drama A.Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale tells President Lincoln’s Indiana boyhood stories through theatre and spectacle live on the grounds where he grew up nearly 200 years ago in the southern Indiana town presently named Lincoln City. It was in Indiana where Lincoln studied by candlelight, received his one-year of formal education, took two flatboat trips to New Orleans, and suffered the great losses of both his beloved mother and sister.
A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale is written and directed by Ken Jones, the resident playwright for Northern Kentucky University. Jones hopes audiences not only will enjoy the theatrical spectacle of the large dance and choral numbers, but walk away with a sense of joy and pride that a young pioneer boy could grow up to be one of the greatest leaders of all time.
“Our 16th President was homegrown in Indiana. I feel that we all know a lot about the President Lincoln, the civil war leader… but there are so many stories of the boy. I learned so many things about Abe’s friends and family, and I believe that those friends and family sculpted this great leader,” Jones said.
President Lincoln acts as the narrator in A.Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale. The production begins with a scene between President Lincoln and his two boys Willie and Tad. His two sons begin to ask their father questions about his Indiana boyhood years. As President Lincoln starts to answer his sons’ questions, the scene fades and his stories come to life on the very grounds they took place.
A.Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale, the two-act musical play enhanced by an original score of ten songs, took the 1500-seat, covered Lincoln Amphitheatre’s stage on June 7 and continues to run Wednesday to Saturdays evenings beginning at 7:30 p.m. CDT with matinees on Sunday, June 16 and Wednesday, June 26 at 2 p.m. CDT.
