MOUNT VERNON – He parted the Red Sea, unleashed 10 plagues on Egypt, introduced 10 commandments to guide people actions, brought forth water from a rock, and lead his people out of slavery and prepared them to enter the Promised Land of Canaan.
On Thursday October 27, join us at ThePlace@TheWoodward (101. S. Main in downtown Mount Vernon) and meet the man who lead his people out of slavery and is a key figure in many different faiths. Portraying Moses is Ken Hammontree, a popular veteran of the Chautauqua stage. Ken is one of the most prolific of presenters of first person living history, portraying over 30 different characters from early Ohio history like Tecumseh to World War II generals like Dwight D. Eisenhower, Founding Fathers, Civil War and international characters as well.
Opening for the program will be The McManaway’s, a local Gospel group made up of family members and a perennial favorite for their faith filled songs.
This donation based program is presented by Elixir Presents and facility costs are paid for by a generous grant from the Ariel Foundation. 100% of the donations go directly to the performers so for this program all money goes to Ken Hammontree and The McManaways.
Coming in December – FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY concert featuring Chautauqua style Eagles, Linda Ronstadt and Emmy Lou Harris. The concert will collect donations of money and food or the annual Food For The Hungry Campaign. For those of our community in need and can’t afford donations this concert is a Christmas gift from us to you. It is a family friendly event and brought to you by some of the many gifted musicians in our community.
