KC presents ‘Letters of the Civil War’

Kishwaukee College will host a performance of “Letters of the Civil War” from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. March 26 in Jenkins Auditorium. The performance by Prairie Star Productions will be free and open to the public. 

“Letters of the Civil War” is part of the Preserving the Past with an Eye on the Future series of presentations at Kishwaukee College.

Letters of the Civil War is a multi-media performance production that includes music, period photographs, and historical reenactment video footage that enhances readings of more than 30 original letters written during the Civil War by soldiers, ordinary citizens and more. Wearing period attire, Rebecca Tulloch and Phil Lauricella from Prairie Star Productions will perform dramatic readings of the letters, vividly illustrating the human cost of the Civil War.

For more information on “Letters of the Civil War,” contact Anne-Marie Eggleston, director of Library Services at Kishwaukee College, at 815-825-2086, ext. 3660. For more information on Prairie Star, visit www.prairiestarproductions.com.
