Youth participants needed for historical re-enactments

The Douglas County Historical Society’s Young Chautauqua will begin January 12 with an informational meeting at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center describe the program and to register.

Young Chautauqua is a program for students fourth through 12th grade who are interested in history, drama, speech, or just want to have fun. The student chooses a character from history and performs this character in the first person.

The program meets every other Tuesday from 6 to 7 p.m. for 11 sessions. Beginning in May, the young people go into the community to perform. A final show is at the Mormon Station State Park in Genoa June 16 and 17 at 5 p.m.

The program is funded in part by Nevada Humanities.

For performance inquiries or information, call the Douglas County Historical Society at the museum at (775)782-2555.
