More than history. More than a performance. More than a story. We are Chautauqua, a nonprofit, experiential oral tradition that brings history to life through interactive theater and compelling discussion aimed at stimulating critical thinking.
At Chautauqua we believe that stories should be told and that histories deserve to be heard. That’s why we’re committed to bringing great communities together to celebrate culture, conversation, and critical thought. We celebrate the diversity of our culture through a variety of voices from the past because history belongs to all of us.
As a non-profit dedicated to bringing history to life, our events are and always will be free, fun, and family-friendly. Get ready to laugh, cry, and have an all-around good time. Join us in making history.
Greenville Chautauqua aims to bring history to life through the use of compelling storytelling and interactive theater where discussion and audience participation stimulates critical thinking.
