Medicine Shows

July 20 @ 11:15 am - 1:30 pm

Performances at 11:15 am and 1:00 pm

The Living History Farms Melodrama Society will present two performances of Prof. Savage’s Traveling Medicine Show just behind the Flynn Mansion, next to the flower gardens. Actors in period clothing, representing a small corps of traveling players performing on behalf of a patent medicine company, will present a show incorporating 19th century vaudeville skits, short acts from period plays, humorous poems and readings, and songs. Interspersed amongst the entertainment, the good Prof. Savage will attempt to convince the audience of the healing powers of his Swamp Root Elixir herbal tonic in true 19th century hard-selling style.

Each performance lasts approximately a half hour; seating and shade is available. In case of rain, performances will be moved to an indoor location.
