What a magnificent location for an outside drama: the High Bridge Pavilion in Jessamine County. The reconstructed Victorian-style pavilion sits near the landmark High Bridge, a railroad bridge that is still the busiest north-south route in the nation.
The Paul Sawyier Story, based on the life of the Kentucky artist, will be presented August 22-24. The biographical drama covers Sawyier’s privileged life and heritage, his sad love story with Miss Mayme Bull, his family’s financial decline, and his death at the age of 52.
Although Sawyier painted more 3,000 Impressionist pieces, only 1,500 have been found or accounted for to date. More than 300 of his works have been reproduced as collectible limited-edition prints. Some will be on display.
Reserved tickets are $15 and $10, children 11 and under $5, and can be purchased at the Jessamine County Judge Executive’s office. For more information call (859) 885-4500.
