CityParks Theater: National Theatre of the USA's Chautaqua

The NTUSA will channel the form and style of the original Chautauqua Lectures, a wildly popular lecture circuit that flourished from 1874 to the Great Depression, through its own inimitable aesthetic and theatrical rhythm, exploring the still hotly debated relationship between High Culture and the Mass Mind. Chautauqua! combines the history of American popular art and entertainment, the culture of commerce and the commerce of culture - our intellectual and political heritage.

They sing about summers in the Rockies and winters on the farm, ice breakups in the spring time and the oil boom’s charm, the mine workers on compressed, the equally depressed, the city’s slow growth and the country’s wild rose, but mostly the songs just try to embrace the advantage of growing up in Alberta.
