(ST. MICHAELS MD- Friday, June 7, 2019) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., will once again host Maryland Humanities’ Chautauqua Summer Series on July 8–10. These live, waterfront performances will be focused on the theme of Making Waves, with all performances taking place from 7-8:30pm on CBMM’s Fogg’s Landing. All performances are free and open to the public.
Chautauqua performances are historical dramatizations featuring individuals who are part scholar, part actor. Each performance has three acts: the first, where the performer represents the historical figure in the first person; the second, where they invite audience questions; and the final act, where the performer steps out of character in order to answer questions that the historical figure would not have been able to answer.
For more information, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916. Additional information about the Chautauqua Summer Series can be found at mdhumanities.org.
