Boone Dinner Theater Production at Cumberland Falls Oct. 3
CORBIN, Ky. -- Cumberland Falls State Resort Park will present a dinner theater production of “Daniel Boone: Coming into Kentucky” on Saturday Oct. 3, 2009.
The Moonbow Dinner Theater production delves into how Daniel Boone became a legend even before his death, but much of what Americans think they know about him is off the mark.
Neither a backwoods bumpkin nor an epic slayer of Indians, Boone was an intrepid explorer and natural leader whose actual exploits amply justify his larger-than-life reputation. He played a crucial role in the exploration and settlement of Kentucky and the American west. Scott New does an exceptional job in bringing Boone to life. New also portrays Daniel Boone at Fort Boonesborough and has appeared in films and paintings.
“Coming into Kentucky” is the exciting story of Boone’s early days of Kentucky settlement when in 1769 he first explored the region as a market hunter, and in 1775, he led the expedition that founded Fort Boonesborough in today’s Madison County.
Enjoy a great dinner in the Riverview Restaurant before the show. Special package price includes one night’s lodging, dinner and show for two for $115.00. Dinner and show are only $30.00 per person. The dining room opens for dinner at 5 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.
