What is a chautauqua?  It’s the way you wished history had been taught when you were in school.  Scholar-actors research a historical figure and then take on that persona in costume on stage, talking to the audience as the character and answering questions afterward, both in character as the actor and out of character as the scholar.  Chautauqua is a highly anticipated event in Boulder City, which takes its history seriously.
