Historic New Harmony tour season begins March 15 with Golden Troupe exhibit
Included in the tour, the new Golden Troupe exhibit will focus on the props that were used during the Golden family’s performances. They were a traveling theater company that was based in New Harmony in the late 1800s and gave performances across the country. The exhibit will highlight their costumes, accessories, and props. There will be wigs the actors actually wore, broadsides that advertise the Golden Troupe, and photographs of the actors in costumes. The exhibit is showcased at Thrall’s Opera House, which was also the Golden Troupe’s home theater.
The conducted walking tour starts at the award winning Atheneum/ Visitors Center. Ticket prices are $10.00 per adult, $9.00 for seniors and AAA members, $5.00 for students ages 7-17, children under age 7 are free, and $25.00 for a family. New Harmony residents, as well as University of Southern Indiana students, staff and faculty can tour for free with valid ID.
Group tours can be customized to accommodate their interest and available time. Anyone interested in a group tour should contact Sara Brown at email@example.com or call 812/682-4474 for more information.
