Don’t miss the revival and homecoming of the legendary and nationally acclaimed Appalachian Green Parks Project! Thursday night is the Gala Kick-off of the 2007 OVST Summer Season and fundraiser; Sunday is the family-friendly matinée with more content especially for children.

AGPP & Friends will feature a mountain-style mix of banjo, guitar, dulcimer and fiddle music performed by many of the original AGPP cast members. Sitting in for several performances will be Bruce and Gay Dalzell, Charlie and Celia Lewis, Jim McGraw, and Connie Winters. Catch the magic in late March or again during the summer, but don’t miss the chance to witness this long anticipated reunion.

In the summers of 1973 and 1974, park visitors were invited to savor Arts-in-the-Parks. This popular program, funded through the Ohio Arts Council, brought outdoor presentations of the Appalachian Green Parks Project to eighteen state park venues. Seasoned performers with the Ohio Valley Summer Theater along with student performers from Ohio University brought Ohio’s heritage to life with authentic period music, dramatized stories and traditional dance. In its two-year life, 21,000 folks came to their parks to enjoy this entertaining and socially significant program, which received a Governors Award for Community Action in 1974.
