Jack Tales

Booker T. Washington National Monument to Host

Jack Tale Players as Part of Living History Day

Hardy, VA - Booker T. Washington National Monument is pleased to be hosting the always entertaining Jack Tale Players on Saturday, July 25 for two performances, 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. If you want to laugh out-loud come join Jack, the Appalachian folk hero, as he overcomes adversity through his wit and wisdom and maybe even a few songs. The Jack Tales, as dramatized by R. Rex Stephenson, are stories of the Blue Ridge Mountains that appeal to audiences of all ages because of the fast-paced action, energetic actors, and foot stomping music. Join us under the cedar tree next to Booker’s cabin for an afternoon of entertainment and fun. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket.

This program is produced by the Blue Ridge Dinner Theater Touring Productions at Ferrum College. The program is appropriate for the young and young at heart and free to the public. For more information, please contact the park at (540) 721-2094.
