Mississippi Medicine Show takes you back to the Natchez of the mid 19th century. A recreation of old steamboat times when traveling shows pedaled their miracle cures up and down the mighty Mississippi River with the top talent of the day. Dr. Morphineus Codeine Shingles touts his “Magic Wondrous Healing Oil, the Elixir of Life!” and brings with him his hilarious sidekick, Miss Scarlette, Mark Twain and a group of comics, clowns, and performers singing the popular music of the 1800’s and about the river.
Classics by Stephen Foster, Jerome Kern, Roger Miller, spirituals and songs of the Civil War performed in period costumes as well as the wit and wisdom of Mark Twain and songs made famous by the Black Swan, Elizabeth Taylor Greenfield, born as a slave in Natchez but taken to the north and adopted by her owner where she was given her freedom to sing on the stages of Europe and the Swedish nightingale, Jenny Lind who visited Natchez in the 1850's.
