Friends of Fort Harrod is pleased to announce that the State has issued another grant to continue the outdoor dramas in the Old Fort Harrod State Park Amphitheater for a 4th Season!

   Ragged Edge Community Theater will perform "State Fair The Musical" in the Fort Harrod Amphitheater on June 11-14 & 18-21, 2015.

     Ragged Edge will then perform the outdoor drama, "James Harrod The Battle for Kentucky" each Thursday, Friday and Saturday in July 2015 at the Old Fort Harrod State Park Amphitheater. Come see how the West was really won!

To enhance the play, Friends of Fort Harrod voted at its last regular meeting to purchase and provide three more flintlocks for the 2015 season!

These are two excellent outdoor dramas and good family oriented entertainment in the open air. Concessions will be available and you will have the opportunity to meet the cast.
