See the story of Abraham Lincoln’s childhood from the perspective of the 16th U.S. president in the new musical A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale.
The story begins in 1816 when Lincoln’s family moved to southern Indiana looking for new opportunities. Through the music and stories told by an older Lincoln to his two young sons, the audience hears the account of the president’s boyhood.
The musical takes place at the Lincoln Amphitheater, a 1,500-seat, covered structure inside Lincoln State Park in Lincoln City on the same land where Lincoln’s family once settled.
The show, written and directed by Ken Jones, is told in two acts with 10 songs. The play runs June 8-30, Wednesday through Saturday evenings with one Sunday matinee on July 1. Evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m. A preshow and optional buffet meal will be catered by Chateau Restaurant.
