Fort Harrod Play in Harrodsburg, KY

We were able to see a performance of James Harrod:  The Battle For Kentucky by the Ragged Edge Theatre. 

It is in a BEAUTIFUL outdoor theater at Fort Harrod.  I loved the venue.  The stage is authentically wooded!

This is a fun play to watch- though there were some audio issues.  A mic system is used here, and there was some bad feedback at times.  The system is needed though, as the theater is very big, and traffic noise can get bad.  Luckily, none of the actors were wearing those annoying headset mics that are really distracting.

I was also hoping that this play would touch on the mystery of what exactly happened to James Harrod (but it didn't).  Look it up one day!  He goes out hunting and disappears!  Some say he went back to Pennsylvania, was killed by Indians, left his wife.......  James Harrod's fate is worthy of investigation by Art Bell or Mulder and Scully.  I would love to see a play or documentary about that!

Still, check out this play sometime!
