The Toyota Motor Blue Ribbon Stage at the Fairgrounds will be coming to life with a high energy musical production that explores Kentucky’s position as a border state during the Civil War. The cast members will entertain via a ‘war of words’ as they sing about the Blue versus Gray conflict that positioned brother against brother in the southern states. You and your family will go on a musical trip that explores communication, transportation and songs from the days when both Rebel and Confederate flags waved at “Kentucky’s Civil War Song, From Reveille to Tattoo”.
Families can also check out the “Brave Hunters of Kentucky, Kentuckians in the War of 1812”. ?This is a patriotic, 30-minute musical that reveals the historical importance of a war that most people never read about in the history books.
