PETERSBURG -- New Salem is what puts Our Town Petersburg on the map. But you might be surprised to find it has more to offer than just Abraham Lincoln History. 

It also has its very own amphitheater for plays. Theater in the Park is nestled right in the heart of town. The stage is surrounded by trees and the audience sits under the stars to watch a performance. People say it's the perfect way to end a trip to New Salem.

The group has been performing each summer for more than 100 years. It does everything from Shakespeare to Broadway musicals. There's one free performance prior to each show opening.
