Follow the North Star

This award-winning, interactive theatrical program demonstrates the wide ranging social attitudes toward African-Americans in pre-Civil War Indiana.

Participants travel back to the year 1836 and assume the role of fugitive slaves seeking freedom on the Underground Railroad through Indiana. Traveling as a group, you will encounter a variety of characters, ranging from sympathetic allies to racist antagonists. Join us for this powerful experience that generates empathy, provokes discussion, and immerses visitors in this important part of our nation’s history.

Follow the North Star is not for everyone. You should be prepared to take on the role of an escaped slave; you'll be walking outside on rough terrain in all kinds of weather, told to keep your eyes focused downward and spoken to in an abrupt manner.
