Audiences will gather for a variety of historical enactments, workshops, and discussions at the Summer Chautauqua 2018 in Enid. This year's event will focus on the theme "The Modern Age: Moving Forward from World War I," and examines the social, political, and economic changes following the end of the war, including the expansion of America's role in international affairs, inflation, labor unrest, women's suffrage, prohibition, racial unrest and injustices, and intolerance.

Daytime workshops will be held at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center's Humphrey Heritage Village Church. The evening performance will start at 7:30 pm and include first person presentations and audience questions to a historical figure in character and to the scholar portraying the character. Portrayals of figures such as Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Ernest Hemingway, Acee Blue Eagle, and more will provide a close-up view of this era. All Chautauqua programs are free and open to the public.

7:00 pm evening presenter: Doug Mishler as General "Black Jack" Pershing
