ADVANCE TICKETS FOR 2017 VINTAGE VOICES 

"A New Century" 
***Revamped Performance Run of Tours in the City Cemetery*** 

The Vintage Voices Community Committee has chosen eight sites with ten characters who were influential to Alton's history during the turn of the century. Loretta Williams will portray May Olive Gillham and Diana Kay will join her as Bertha Whitney - both ladies were inspiring teachers. Kerry Miller will portray James M. Maupin - a prominent architect with many historic homes still standing in the Alton area. Gail Drillinger will portray Mrs. Henry Watson - philanthropist who donated the land for Riverfront Park. Adam King will portray Mr. William Luecth, a WWI veteran, while Shawn Williams and Lorenzo Small take on the roles of featured soldiers Capt. Arnold Wilson Cisco and 2nd Lt. George Edward Cisco. Both men were Tuskegee Airmen and highlight a significant piece of American History. David Boase will then take on the role of "historian" as Andrew Carnegie and enlighten visitors about the history of the Library System. Parker Grassle will portray Nick Taneakas, a young drowning victim who reminds us of the powerful forces in Mother Nature and finally, John Meehan portrays Richard Galbaly, a glassblower who represented Illinois Glass at an exhibition in Paris, France.
