ENID, Okla. — Enid Chautauqua invites guests to step back in time with stories and anecdotes from historical figures at “Surviving the Sixties: Sex, Drugs and Rock ’n’ Roll,” its 2022 Enid Summer Chautauqua programs hosted by the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center (CSRHC). These free programs will take place Tuesday through Saturday, June 14–18, under the big white tent in the Humphrey Heritage Village at the CSRHC. Local entertainers will perform beginning at 6:30 p.m. each evening, with the scholar performances beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Through live performances, visitors can travel to another era and meet some of history's most illustrious characters while listening to stories and anecdotes from unique, first-person perspectives.
