The Lantern Theatre
Barn Theatre

Created with Music by Bill Hoffman
Based on the Writings of James Whitcomb Riley

Show Description:
Last summer, the words of The Hoosier Poet, James Whitcomb Riley, were brought to life in The Goblins Will Git You and audiences were greatly moved by the poems, stories and songs which celebrated life in 19th century, small-town America. And so, the celebration continues with Summer Days Gone By, More Writings of James Whitcomb Riley, created with music by Bill Hoffman.  It’s the summer of 1867. The effects of the Civil War remain profound throughout the land and, yet, the children of the village play on in the fields, the woods, the gardens and the worlds of their imaginations. It’s the summer of 1867. A great time to be a child.
