Challenge Accepted! - Chautauqua History Comes Alive Festival

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

A ten-day, two-weekend festival offering entertaining historically accurate storytelling. Get ready to travel in time and interact with these famous Americans, where secrets will be revealed. You’ll laugh, cry and flat out have a great time. And the shows are FREE! Eisenhower, Houdini, Kennedy, O’Keeffe and Murray - brilliant Americans who stepped up to accept the challenges of their lifetimes. Their influence spanned the arts of war, politics, painting, social protest, and even deception. Hear their stories – ask them how their world changed – and why they accepted the gauntlet. A cast of nationally acclaimed historical interpreters will perform in character. Dwight Eisenhower – General and President (Portrayed by Doug Mishler, Reno, NV) Harry Houdini – Magician and Skeptic (Portrayed by Larry Bounds, Greer, SC) Robert Kennedy – Politician and Attorney General (Portrayed by Jeremy Meier, Sylvania, OH) Georgia O’Keeffe – On Canvas and Off (Portrayed by Leslie Goddard, Chicago, IL) Pauli Murray – Attorney and Priest (Portrayed by Becky Stone, Fairview, NC) Performances will be held outdoors in the evenings and indoors during the day. Bring lawn seating for outdoor shows. Most indoor shows require prior registration.
