Time Traveler’s Jubilee: The Indiana Dunes

05/17/2018 10:30 am - 10:30 am
Memorial Opera House
Address: 104 Indiana Ave, Valparaiso, IN 46383, USA

Performances At 10:30 AM And 12:30 PM On Thursday, May 17, 2018. Presented By The Family Folklore Foundation & Memorial Opera House. All seats are $5.00.

Our time machine will take to life around the time of the Civil War…you know, when the Memorial Opera House was built by veterans. That’s when President Abe Lincoln gets the ball moving to protect America’s Wonders, including our beautiful Lake Michigan sand dunes.

Visit the Theater of Imagination (also known as the radio play) about Hoosier Heroes with cameo appearances from Stephen Mathers, Colonel Leiber, Diana of the Dunes and Gene Stratton Porter. Enjoy a rollick with the woodland plant and animal puppet show. Sing the chorus along with the South Shore Brass Band Quintet to “Back Home Again In Indiana” and “The Moonlight Shines Tonight Along The Wabash”. Take home a Time Travelers’ Home Companion booklet about the Duneland heroes, plants and animals; and also learn about how the Family Folklore Foundation, Inc. actors and puppeteers created this wonderful trek back in time.

By Dr. Meg DeMakas & Rebecca Swerdon
Featuring The South Shore Brass Band Quintet
Presented with the support of Indiana Arts Commission, National Endowment For The Arts and South Shore Arts

    Theatrepalooza features an afternoon of free theatrical entertainment presented by theatres across Northwest Indiana. Short excerpts of comedies, dramas, musicals, improv, Shakespeare, reader's theatre, and so much more.

    Did you know there are more than 20 theatres in Northwest Indiana. You don't have to travel to Chicago to experience exceptional live theatre. It's right here, just around the corner, and it features your neighbor, your nurse, your teacher, your administrative assistant, your lawyer, and your contractor.

    Be sure to visit the booths in the lobby before or after the show in order to learn more about what each theatre offers including volunteer opportunities, classes, auditions, upcoming shows, and special events.

    This program is presented free of charge thanks to a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission and South Shore Arts.
