Name: Spirit Voices from Old Manatee Season VII
Date: October 6, 2017 - October 22, 2017
Event Description:
Spirit Voices from Old Manatee is an outdoor historical drama staged at Manatee Village Historical Park and the 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds in Bradenton, Florida. This unique fundraiser for historical preservation activities at Manatee Village is now in its seventh season. The popular production features costumed thespians who bring to life those interred in the county’s first organized cemetery and surrounding areas with haunting graveside dialogues. Stories are based on narratives from archives, descendants, diaries, military logs, books and legend. Viewers learn about the development of the area from 1840 to the turn of the century. The audience leaves with a new appreciation for the contributions made by pioneers to the Manatee lands through tales of their triumphs, tragedies and amusing escapades. In 2017, we introduce Sam Sanford as the Season VII Creative Director.
