The staged production of Waxahachie's OLD FASHIONED SINGING will usher you back to the first half of the 20th Century when southern folks gathered to sing together under brush arbors, in white-framed church buildings... and the Chautauqua Auditorium!


With live acoustic instruments, twelve singers present an hour and a half of congregational songs popularized by the Revivalist Movement in the American south. Now and then, you get to sing along!

Note: The Historic 1902 Chautauqua Auditorium has slatted wooden pews with backs. You may want to bring a pillow, cushion or quilt to sit on.

Also due to the age of the Auditorium, there is a limited number of restroom facilities in the building; there are additional ones across the street in the city park.
