What's not to love about watching musical performances on summer nights under the stars surrounded by a natural forest? My Old Kentucky Home's amphitheater shows are a unique experience that have been part of the American family tradition for generations.
THE STEPHEN FOSTER STORY
The Stephen Foster Story has been delighting audiences at the J. Dan Talbott Amphitheatre since 1959. The show is set in the mid 19th century and follows America’s first great composer Stephen Collins Foster as he paves the road for future songwriters through love, heartache, and the struggles of the time. Featuring over fifty of Foster’s greatest compositions such as “Oh! Susanna”, “Camptown Races”, “Beautiful Dreamer”, “Hard Times (Come Again No More), & Kentucky’s state song “My Old Kentucky Home”, The Stephen Foster Story captures the essence of a by-gone era through song, dance, breathtaking costumes, and the picture-perfect setting of My Old Kentucky Home State Park. Playing in 2019 select dates from June 8 – August 10.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors, from the minds of the award-winning combination of Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”
