On Friday, September 8, join us for an exclusive 45-minute performance of YOUNG ABE LINCOLN presented by TCT On Tour, the touring division of The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati.

Abraham Lincoln will be remembered as the 16th President of the United States, the man who abolished slavery and for having the most memorable beard/hat combo of any president. But how did Abe become the influential politician beloved by so many? TCT On Tour retraces the steps of Abe Lincoln's early life in Southern Indiana.

The production was written by Ken Jones, Jamey Strawn and Christine Jones with music and lyrics by Jamey Strawn and Christine Jones. The writing trio previously crafted TCT's 2016 wildly-successful "Snow White and the Dancing Dwarfs" production, and the 2013 holiday show, "The Day Before Christmas" as well as other successful productions including: "Burgertown," "CHURCH GIRLS, Umatilla USA," and "LINCOLN: A Pioneer Tale." The show is directed by TCT's own Jay Goodlett.
