Dress rehearsal’s over; it’s time for the show

The five new characters in this year’s Kentucky Chautauqua cast made it through their final review this week — and they’re almost ready to take their shows on the road.

On Monday, the characters — Lucy Audubon (Kelly Brengelman), Rosemary Clooney (Bet Stewart), Johnny Green (Ethan Smith), Justice John Marshall Harlan (Ed Smith) and Billy Herndon (Robert Brock) — gave their full 45-minute performances to a crowd of professional and volunteer reviewers. They will use reviewers’ suggestions to fine tune their performances before bookings begin July 1.

The Kentucky Humanities Council’s Whole Humanities Catalog, which advertises all of our Chautauqua performers and Speakers Bureau members, will be available July 1, and bookings for the upcoming season can be made at that time. The catalog is your tool for choosing and booking a Chautauqua performance or Speakers Bureau talk. You can also visit our Web site for instructions.
