Ohio-Chautauqua

What happens when you mix theater and history? Sometimes, you get terrible period pieces. Other times? You get Ohio Chautauqua, a 19th-century tradition of bringing history to life through a five-day celebration of music, education and performances full of audience participation. Enjoy daytime activities, interesting lessons and unique performances that bring icons like Marie Curie into present day. Head to Milan from June 27-July 1 for the last stop on Ohio Chautauqua’s big tent summer tour. Schedule varies. See online for more information.
