Celebrate the holidays like the pioneers did in 1797 as you are treated to an 18th-century dinner with musical drama. Three performances will be held December 9, 10, and 11, 6:30 p.m.
The script is set in the town of Milford, the original seat of Madison County. Daniel Boone, then age 63, arrives during his winter hunt and prior to leaving Kentucky for the Spanish Territory.
The musical drama and original songs were written by Rusty Rechenbach with arrangements by Bill McKenney, in addition to 18th-century Christmas carols.
The meal includes authentic menu items from a typical 18th-century table: relishes of rutabagas, carrots, and turnips; roasted chestnuts, hot cider and coffee, pumpkin soup, roasted chicken, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, and dried apple pie.
Pioneer Christmas in Kentucky, in its 10th year, has a new script and a new venue, moving from its past location at Fort Boonesborough to the White Oak Pond Church in Richmond, which was the original log meeting house of Milford.
Tickets are $25 by advance reservation only; call (859) 623-6515. White Oak Pond Church is located at 1238 Barnes Mill Road at the corner of Goggins Lane.
