To celebrate its 48th opening night, "Trumpet in the Land," Ohio longest-running outdoor historical drama, is offering all Tuscarawas County residents tickets for just $5. Showtime for the Friday, June 16 performance will be 8:30 p.m. at the Schoenbrunn Amphitheatre in New Philadelphia.
 
Written by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Paul Green, "Trumpet in the Land" is an unforgettable experience that tells the inspiring story of Moravian missionary David Zeisberger’s efforts to found Schoenbrunn, the first settlement in the Ohio country during the Revolutionary War. Performed in the same hills from which this story is born, the epic outdoor production uses song, dance, horses and special effects to create an unforgettable evening of family entertainment.
 
“We have been proud to call the Tuscarawas Valley home for nearly 50 years and take great pride in being able to share our inspiring history with local residents and visitors from all over the world,” said Margaret Bonamico, Trumpet in the Land's general manager. “On a beautiful summer night there is nothing better than seeing the story of David Zeisberger and his Christian Indian followers come to life on our outdoor stage as we use music, dance, horses and special effects to recreate this unforgettable story.”
 
Regular ticket prices are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors or $10 for children 12 and under. However, residents of Tuscarawas County can receive special opening-night tickets for $5 by simply showing proof of residency.
 
"Trumpet in the Land" first premiered in 1970 and is Ohio’s longest-running outdoor drama and the sixth oldest in the country. Actors from all over the United States travel to New Philadelphia for the summer to help tell this inspiring story.
 
Tuscarawas County tickets are available now and can be purchased at the Tuscarawas County Welcome Center at 124 E. High Ave. in New Philadelphia or after 2 p.m. at the Schoenbrunn Amphitheatre box office. Tickets also can be purchased by phone with a Visa, Discover or Mastercard by calling 330-339-1132 or 330-364-5111.
