The Chautauqua Revue is an updating of the nationwide Chautauquas movement from a century ago that served to empower and enliven communities through education and entertainment. While the Revue does not match the weeklong encampments that was a hallmark of the original Chautauquas, the Revue holds dear the aim to be a source of joy and inspiration. Through a mix of music, comedy, physical feats, the spoken word, some unruly clowns, a sardonic mistress of ceremonies, a wickedly good stage band, and whatever other sundries come our way, the Revue is a stew of sights and sounds that needs to be experienced to be understood.
Tickets go on sale July 1.
Climbing PoeTree will perform all four nights of the Revue, September 4-7.
