Come to Lawton Chautauqua, held at the Lawton City Hall Auditorium and the Museum of the Great Plains, to explore life after World War I and glimpse both the struggles and the triumphs of those living in that time. Each day, a different scholar gives a presentation in character followed by a Q&A session from the audience, first in character, then as a scholar.

2018 Lineup:

Tuesday, June 19: Doug Mishler as John Joseph “Blackjack” Pershing
Wednesday, June 20: Debra Conner as Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney
Thursday, June 21: Michael Hughes as Acee Blue Eagle
Friday, June 22: Vanessa Adams-Harris as Josephine Baker
Saturday, June 23: John Anderson as Ernest Hemingway

During the day at 10am and 2pm, there are two workshops held inside the Museum of the Great Plains exploring the West in more depth. Each workshop will be led by a different scholar about a topic pertaining to either his character or some facet of the historical time frame of his character. Evening performances are held at the Lawton City Hall Auditorium at 7pm.
