Time Travelers Jubilee - The Indiana Dunes

  • Memorial Opera House 104 E. Indiana Avenue Valparaiso, IN United States (map)

Our time machine will take you to life around the time of the Civil know, when the Memorial Opera House was built by Veterans. That's when President Abe Lincoln gets the ball moving to protect America's Wonders, including our beautiful Lake Michigan sand dunes. Visit the Theater of Imagination (also known as the radio play) about Hoosier Heroes with cameo appearances from Stephen Mathers, Colonel Leiber, Diana of the Dunes and Gene Stratton Porter. Enjoy a rollick with the woodland plant and animal puppet show. Sing the chorus along with the South Shore Brass Band Quintet to "Back Home Again in Indiana" and "The Moonlight Shines Tonight Along the Wabash". Take home a Time Traveler's Home Companion booklet about the Duneland heroes, plants, and animals; and also learn about how the Family Folklore Foundation, Inc. actors and puppeteers created this wonderful trek back in time!
