|Reservations being taken for adventure trip to Lincoln Amphitheatre|
A trip is planned for Friday, June 22 to Lincoln State Park in Lincoln City, Indiana to enjoy the world premiere of A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale, a two-act musical enhanced with an original score of 10 songs designed to entertain and educate audiences of all ages about Abraham Lincoln’s journey from an Indiana pioneer to President of the United States. It is 1816, and Thomas, Nancy, Sarah and a young Abraham Lincoln move to the Southern Indiana wilderness looking for new opportunities. Amidst the hope of a new life, Abe’s mother Nancy sings a powerful song about moving on to Indiana and never looking back.
The scene fades to the Executive Mansion with President Lincoln talking about his beloved mother to his sons Willie and Tad. “I wish I could have met her,” says Tad. President Lincoln looks at his sons and says, “Me too. She was a special woman. She always taught me to respect others and to remember my place in life.”
So begins A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale, a new musical about Abraham Lincoln’s Indiana boyhood years. Audiences will witness this inspiring story come to life at the majestic Lincoln Amphitheatre, a 1,500 seat covered outdoor venue nestled amongst the trees on the very land Lincoln walked as a boy. Come with them as they enjoy the complete “Lincoln Experience” with a homestyle meal, live entertainment and pre-show activities. At Lincoln Amphitheatre, they will witness history come to life.
The trip will depart the parking lot of Charlestown’s First United Methodist Church located at the corner of Market and Water Streets at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, June 22 via Toby Tours motorcoach. The price of $58 includes transportation, meal and the musical A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale. The trop should return to Charlestown at approximately midnight or slightly later.
