High Plains Chautauqua 2019 will celebrate its 20th Anniversary August 5-8, 2019 with a lineup featuring audiences’ favorite living history portrayals over the years at Aims Community College in Greeley (just 90 minutes north of Denver). All programs are free.
2018’s theme “Blowin’ in the Wind: The 60s” evoked memories of flower children, tie dye shirts, sit-ins, and war protesters as America grappled with one of the most turbulent decades in its modern history. High Plains Chautauqua audiences explored upheaval across the land through the eyes of the following characters who impacted politics, social justice, environmental awareness and the suburban explosion.
“A unique combination of theatre and history under a tent – reminiscent of the early 20th century tent Chautauqua.”
“A wonderful way to spend a beautiful Colorado evening outdoors. Even the occasional evening shower adds to the atmosphere.”
“Great way to spark my kids’ interest in history and the humanities.”
