10th Annual Voices of Elmwood

Wagon Rides 6:00 PM, 6:30 PM, 7:00 PM, 7:30 PM, 8:00 PM, 8:30 PM, 9:00 PM

The tenth-annual Voices of Elmwood will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, beginning the evening of September 21, 2017 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.  In recognition of Owensboro’s 2017 bicentennial, this year’s performances will also portray people that played a part in Owensboro history, but may not be buried at 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 2017 will offer ten new stories of people from our community.  Todd Reynolds 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 30 minutes each evening and stop for each actor’s presentation.

Tent shows, perfect for large church groups, supper clubs, tour buses or patron preferring not to ride in the wagons, will be offered on October 5th, 6th, and 7th and will begin at 6:00 pm. For more information, call the Owensboro Museum of Science and History (270) 687-2732.  Tickets for both the wagon and tent shows go on sale Monday, August 7th at owensborotickets.com.
