14th Annual Voices Of Elmwood™ Announces Performances Dates! Tickets @ Owensborotickets.com!

 

The fourteenth-annual Voices of Elmwood™ will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, beginning the evening of September 16, 2021 and will run for a total of nine evenings in September and October.  Voices of Elmwood™ is a celebration of history, designed to honor our region’s heritage and is sponsored by Dahl and Groezinger, Inc.  Trailer sponsors are Thacker Wealth and Retirement and Actor sponsors include Lanham Brothers Construction and the General Evan Shelby Chapter of the D.A.R.

Founded by the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, and in collaboration with the Daviess County Public Library, Voices of Elmwood 2021 will offer ten new stories of people from our community. Carolyn Greer will be directing the series, with local actors in period costumes presenting the story of the person they are portraying. Wagon rides will leave every thirty minutes each evening and stop for each actor’s presentation. 

Performances begin at 6:00 p.m. each evening, with the last wagon leaving at 9:00 p.m. each night. Tent shows, perfect for large church groups, supper clubs, tour buses or patrons preferring not to ride in the wagons, will be offered on September 30th, October 1st and 2nd, and will begin   at 6:00 p.m.
