High Plains Chautauqua The American Spirit: an Endless Quest

For five days each August on Aims Community College campus, audiences step back in time as High Plains Chautauqua (HPC) recreates the turn-of-the-century traveling tent Chautauqua that brought education and entertainment to communities in the form of lectures, concerts, and plays. The August 4-8, 2009 HPC, “The American Spirit: An Endless Quest,” concludes a three-year series on American identity from colonial times through the 20th century.  The unique blend of theatre, history and the humanities will feature portrayals of Americans who embody the spirit of 20th century America – a time when the United States assumed international prominence in science, commerce, politics, and the arts, and marked by our ongoing struggle to fulfill ideals embodied in the Declaration of Independence. For more Information please contact Jane Adams, Director of High Plains Chautauqua at 970-351-6178 or at jadams9252@comcast.net.
