The ninth-annual Voices of Elmwood will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, beginning the evening of September 15, 2016 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 the lives of the many people buried at Owensboro’s Elmwood Cemetery. Founded by the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, in collaboration with the Daviess County Public Library and Theatre Workshop of Owensboro, Voices of Elmwood 2016 will offer ten new stories of people from our community. 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 29th and 30th and on October 1st, and will begin at 6:00 p.m. The tours last about an hour and fifteen minutes and are not recommended for children under twelve years of age. Patrons should arrive fifteen minutes prior to their wagon’s departure time or tent show performance.
Cemetery is located at 1300 Old Hartford Road, Owensboro, Kentucky, 42303 and parking is available on site. Tickets are $18 per person, for both the wagon and tent shows and will go on sale Friday, August 19 at owensborotickets.com. Patrons may obtain additional information by calling the Museum of Science and History at (270) 687-2732.
