Actors present living histories June 13, 14, 19
GALENA, IL — Performers of the June 13, 14 and 19 Cemetery Walk in 2020 will explore the lives of past residents, sharing stories that shine a light on the people who made our region what it is today.
Cemetery Walk is one of the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society’s major fundraising events. A team of researchers, actors and supporters put countless hours of preparation into each year’s Walk to create a remarkable experience.
Writer and Director Ronn Toebaas relies heavily on research by local librarian Scott Wolfe and Historical Society Board Member Kris Chapman to find the facts behind the people who are portrayed in each Walk.
You can be a living witness at Greenwood Cemetery on Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14. Shows start every 20 minutes from 2 to 4:30 p.m.
An indoor, seated performance is set for June 19. Proceeds go to the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society’s mission to preserve the stories of our region. Check back at galenahistory.org as the Cemetery Walk 2020 plans continue, and read about last year’s Walk to get a sense of our performances.
For more information, phone 815-777-9129 or visit www.galenahistory.org. Tickets are available at the gate only on the day of the performances.
