Buncombe Chautauqua


The Chautauqua format will be familiar to those who have attended in the past. Each evening, a nationally acclaimed historical interpreter dressed in costume will bring the character to life through a first person monologue. The audience will then have a chance to question the character, delving more deeply into the issues that have been raised. The replies will be historically authentic, based on research using letters, diaries, journals, and published writings. Finally, the interpreter will step out of character to discuss the subject and answer questions from a critical, modern perspective.
