Lincoln's Traveling Troupe
Copyright © 2016 Lincoln's Traveling Troupe
If you like to act, perform on stage, play dress-up, learn about the people who went before us, work with electronic equipment or build things…then Lincoln’s Traveling Troupe has something for you! We are a group of talented student and community volunteers, whose goal it is to honor the life and legacy of America’s 16th president through authentic, living-history dramatic portrayal, and historical re-enactment. Rehearsals for our 2015 production of The Heavens Are Hung in Black, detailing President Lincoln’s assassination and its aftermath, begin on Thursday, January 8, from 3:30-5:00, in the basement Dining Hall at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 720 South Second Street in Mankato. Performances of the play are scheduled for April 24-26th, 2015. The Troupe is open to both youth and adults—previous acting experience is welcomed, but not required.
