The New Old Time Chautauqua is a community of performers, friends, and families who see live performance as a way to share laughter, friendship and wonder, and to build community through laughter, entertainment and education.

Help Chautauqua build its traveling kitchen!

When we stop after traveling for a long day from the last community we have served, we currently have to take nearly everything out from the present kitchen trailer, set it up, and try to remember how it all goes together. This often takes over an hour, leaving our hungry members even hungrier as we work to get the kitchen up and running. The good news - NOTC is taking on a marvelous and transformational project at this very moment to make it all run smoother. Learn more and donate!
