JUNE 12 – Tuesday 12 noon
CHASING LOVE – Love stories from Master Storyteller Sharon Kirk Clifton
UPDATE: SOLD OUT
Join us for a delicious lunch followed by Sharon Kirk Clifton’s first-person storytelling drama CHASING LOVE!
Funny how the road to romance can be full of hairpin turns and potholes. Sometimes it simply dead-ends. Come hear how true love handles the road hazards of life. Be warned, though. Not all stories end with a "happily ever after."
Ms. Clifton is affiliated with Storytelling Arts of Indiana. She is a published author, and has received numerous awards and recognition from Indiana Arts Commission/National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship; Frank Basile Emerging Stories Fellowship, and commissioned to develop a storytelling program for the Indiana State Museum to name a few.
Luncheon will be served: includes beverage, salad, entrée, and dessert.
Adults: $25.00 per person. Includes tax and gratuity.



JULY 17 - Tuesday 12 noon
ABRAHAM LINCOLN – featuring Lincoln impersonator Danny Russel
UPDATE: SOLD OUT
Hilarity and heartbreak abound as our most famous Hoosier, Abraham Lincoln traces his amazing journey from a log cabin to the White House in this compelling performance. In his customary black suit and ever-present stovepipe hat you’ll learn about his Indiana youth (age 7-21) where frontier life was precarious, disease a constant companion, and death a hovering presence. How did he overcome hardscrabble poverty, numerous business failures and one undistinguished term in Congress? For Lincoln, “all men created equal” was a clarion call leading to his nomination for the presidency, inspiring the Emancipation Proclamation, justifying the Civil War, and the 13th Amendment which abolished slavery. Too often obscured by the marble statue, this humorous portrayal reveals the humble and humane statesman who inspired it.
In addition to being a lifetime member of the National Association of Lincoln Presenters, Mr. Russel is a four-time grant recipient honored by the Indiana Arts Commission for theatrical excellence.
Luncheon will be served: includes beverage, salad, entrée, and dessert.
Enjoyed by ladies and gentlemen: $25.00 per person
