Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution, Blue Jacket recounts the inspiring struggle for peace in Americas 18th century frontier, The Ohio Territory. Relive the adventure as Shawnee Indians, frontier settlers and fugitive slaves forge the definition of American freedom. Recently listed #1 in America, Blue Jacket is a masterful combination of theatre, history and stunning athleticism. Action-packed and emotionally charged it is also distinguished as a Library of Congress Local Legacy. Horses thunder across Blue Jacket's 3-acre stage during the exciting battle of Fort Boonesboro. One of Ohio's most treasured family adventures, Blue Jacket features 18 horses, Revolutionary War cannons, flaming arrows and a multiracial cast of 50 professional actors. Evocatively underscored by Native American flutes, rattles, drums and nature sounds, Blue Jacket is considered more natural, more authentic and more steadily entertaining than any other play of its kind.
