Chief Cornstalk speaks


Dan Cutler, of the Ohio Humanities, portrays Shawnee Chief Cornstalk on opening night of the Ohio Chautauqua series this week in Gallipolis City Park. Cutler presented Chief Cornstalk in three acts, the first of which involved the actor giving his historical presentation and interpretation of the famous Native American chief. In the second and third acts, Cutler answered questions from the audience, first while dressed as the chief, then as a historian and scholar. The audience was encouraged to ask questions as it related to the character’s time period. Ohio Chautauqua runs through June 25 with portrayals of “Frankenstein” author Mary Shelley on Wednesday, gorilla researcher Dian Fossey on Thursday, President Theodore Roosevelt on Friday, and physicist Madam Marie Curie on Saturday. Music entertainment begins each program at 6:45 p.m. under the big red tent. Performances are set for 7;30 p.m. each night.
