Historic Performers 2017

Ever wanted to have your picture taken with Amelia Earhart or ask Calamity Jane what she thought of Wild Bill Hickok? Here is your chance to do that and more! Find out what it was like to be a stop on the underground railroad, risk everything for a dream of flight, and travel into Kansas Territory.

And while you're at it, think about bringing these scholar/performers to your community to entertain and educate. For more information go to www.historicperformance.com
