Lincoln Amphitheatre is a 1,500-seat, covered amphitheatre located on the grounds Abraham Lincoln walked as a boy from age 7 to 21. It is home to the signature outdoor drama, “A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale,” a two-act musical that educates and entertains audiences about Lincoln’s Indiana boyhood journey from pioneer to president through theater, song and spectacle.

Lincoln Amphitheatre’s 2013 season kicks off with two concerts and an education program in the spring with “Celtic Spring: Song and Dance,” followed by a gospel concert featuring the Woodsmen Quartet and the Childress Family and Tales and Scales presentation of “Mice!” 

The theatrical season includes “A. Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale,” “Godspell” in partnership with Evansville Civic Theatre, and The National Players presentation of “Macbeth.” The season will wrap up with the third annual Trail of Terror.
