The New Old Time Chautauqua will visit the Dayton area on July 18-19.
It will be at Lewis & Clark Trail State Park on July 18 and in Dayton on July 19.
Chautauqua was a cultural and social movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries that saw touring groups present lectures, dance, music, drama and other forms of cultural enrichment.
The New Old Time Chautauqua formed in 1981 “to revive the Chautauqua spirit and bring live entertainment and educational workshops to diverse rural communities,” a news release said.
It has more than 60 members and its founders include the Flying Karamazov Brothers and Dr. Patch Adams.
