An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until January 31, 2018
In the late 19th century, New Harmony was home to a well-respected troupe of professional actors and musicians – the Golden Troupe.
The Golden Troupe is a permanent exhibition in Thrall’s Opera House, which served as their home theatre. Each year, a different aspect of the Troupe is explored. This year’s display focuses on Harry Robinson, a native son of New Harmony who performed in the Golden Troupe and later on in silent movies.
The exhibit can be seen on Historic New Harmony’s guided walking tours. Tours take place at 1 pm daily from the Atheneum/Visitors Center. Information on the tour program and how to obtain tickets may be found at www.newharmony.org.
The exhibition was produced by the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites.
