“Into the Wilderness”
Seatings at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Just imagine nibbling epicurean delights while you are transported in time to being jostled in a wagon along bumpy trails to meet Winnebago warriors who have hopefully come in peace. “Into the Wilderness” is an experience you don’t want to miss. Betsy Means will be dressed in her 19th century best to entertain and educate us about Juliette Kinzie, a well-educated Connecticut socialite who married John Kinzie, a fur trader, and moved to the savage midwest (Chicago) of the 1830’s. Mrs. Kinzie describes her adventures and the historical events in which she participated in her book, “Wau- Bun.” Learning the meaning of the title is worth the ticket price.
