Performances at 1:00pm and 2:00pm
Behind Flynn Mansion, near the flower gardens
The Living History Farms Melodrama Society will present two performances of Prof. Savage’s Traveling Medicine Show just behind the Flynn Mansion, next to the flower gardens. Actors in period clothing, representing a small corps of traveling players performing on behalf of a patent medicine company, will present a show incorporating 19th century vaudeville skits, short acts from period plays, humorous poems and readings, and songs. Interspersed amongst the entertainment, Professor Savage will attempt to convince the audience of the healing powers of his Swamp Root Elixir herbal tonic in 19th century hard-selling style.
Each performance lasts approximately a half hour; seating and shade is available.
