Lincoln musical closes June 29

— Northern Kentucky University’s Ken Jones wrote and has directed the musical about Abraham Lincoln’s Indiana boyhood years on the grounds the nation’s 16th president walked as boy.

Lincoln lived in Indiana from the time he was 7 to 21 years of age. He received his less than one year of formal education in Indiana, studied by candlelight, lost his mother, Nancy Hanks, to milk sickness and his sister, Sarah Lincoln Grigsby, in childbirth.

Performed at the 1,500-seat, covered Lincoln Amphitheatre, the two-act play will entertain and educate audiences about his journey from Indiana pioneer to president.

“This musical shows that as the boy grew to a man in Indiana, and through determination of spirit and a compassion for the people, this common American achieved greatness. With this musical play, audiences will experience and celebrate the life and times of this extraordinary man through song, dance, and spectacle,” says Jones.

“A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale” is enhanced by an original musical score with lyrics by NKU’s Christine Jones and music written by NKU’s Jamey Strawn.

The second season of the musical can be viewed June 26-29 at 7:30 p.m. CDT or June 26 at 2 p.m. CDT at Lincoln Amphitheatre, Lincoln City, just four miles from Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari theme.

Ticket prices are $19 for adults; $16 for seniors 55 and older, students 7-21 and military; and $6 for children 6 and under. An optional homestyle buffet meal including fried chicken, roast beef, green beans, corn and slaw is available for an additional charge to guests who reserve at least three days in advance.
