Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Written by Alex Timbers
Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman
Join us under the stars for an exhilarating rock-n-roll look at one of our nation’s first populist idols: seventh president Andrew Jackson.  The musical recreates and reinvents the life of “Old Hickory” from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as Commander-in-Chief.  Bring a picnic or visit our concession stand!
Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm
July 3, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19 (no show July 4)

Under the Tent at the Old Stone House & Washington Park
The story of the mysterious Fox sisters, three American girls from western New York who started the spiritualist movement in the 1860s and 70s. Hailed as leaders of a new religious movement, the sisters fall into dishonor and ruin. Mr. Splitfoot, the ghostly creation of the sisters, claimed that he possessed them and connected the sisters to the other side.

The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show
Written by Mike Shapiro and Kate Prascher
Wednesdays at 9 pm:  July 9 and 16, 2014
Sundays at 7:30 pm:  July 13 and 20
Under the Tent @ the Old Stone House & Washington Park

THE BUFFALO NICKELS MEDICINE SHOW sings and picks its way through the on- and off-stage exploits of its itinerant company, as they pine for and plot against each other and the audience that gathers each evening around their traveling wagons. The cast of characters performing variously on stage in THE BUFFALO NICKELS MEDICINE SHOW include: “Leopold Finch”, shady purveyor of patent remedies, with a nose for Achilles heels; Finch’s horse “Mule”; “Mabel Morrow”, brassy, bewitching, intoxicated by a crowd; Mabel’s daughter “Bet”; and “Thomas” the rugged union organizer who plays his secrets close to the heart.
