“The World’s Most Famous Court Trial” brought to life in the courtroom where the Scopes Trial happened in 1925. This fact-based dramatization tells the story of how a little town caught the attention of the world and made history.

As a kickoff to the Scopes Festival weekend, Summer Nights will feature Lon Eldridge playing from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Lon has toured the United States and Europe with his unique blend of traditional pre-war blues, ragtime, and swing. His infectious musicality will offer a great start to the Scopes Festival weekend! At 7:30, we invite you to step inside the courthouse to see the opening performance of “Front Page News” this year.
