Tuesday, July 25 - Roland chats with James Pelican about the 15th annual Chautauqua Series at Occidental Arts and Ecology Center happening September 14-16, 2017. The Chautauqua Revue has taken place in the OAEC’s North Garden Theater annually since 2003. The show is an homage to the great Chautauquas of a hundred years ago that were week-long rural encampments that were a mixture of entertainment and education. With elements of storytelling, vaudeville, and circus, the Revue is a show like no other. Each year is a unique mix of physical daring, poignant stories, cutting satire, incomparable musicians, and whatever else we find to add to the stew. The celebration of community, enlightenment and the arts that was the hallmark of the early Chautauqua’s lives on. More information is available at oaec.org
