For the third consecutive summer, there will be Theatre on the River in Ward Oates Amphitheater, at the end of Main Street behind Liberty Hall. All proceeds benefit the Capital City Museum. Admission is $5 per person.

This year there will be two shows offered. Mark Twain’s classic Tom Sawyer, adapted by Laura Eason, is directed by Karen Hatter and features a cast of twelve. Kentucky Governors: An Abbreviated History was written and is being directed by Sami Allison, who directed Two Loves and a River last year, and showcases four actors.

Kentucky Governors: An Abbreviated History was conceived and written by Sami Allison, and it will introduce the audience to all of Kentucky’s governors – Isaac Shelby to Matt Bevin. The show provides a taste of history, some laughs and will leave you intrigued. And this is all accomplished by four talented women: Katy Doyle, Anna Girard Fletcher, Shaina Khan, and Annabelle Renshaw. Technical support is provided to Allison by Ross Duncliffe and Kayla McGaughey.

Production dates for Kentucky Governors are August 5, 12, 13, 26 at 7:00 p.m., with a matinee at 2:00 on the 21st.

Audience is cautioned that there is no shade, and the matinee times will be hot. Please bring, in addition to a chair, an umbrella or a canopy. Concessions will be available one hour before each curtain, as well as during intermission. Should it rain, the performance will be relocated to Frankfort High School, 328 Shelby Street.
