More Information

The two-time Emmy® Award winning Saturday morning show comes to life in a brand new production. Like the award-winning television show, The Henry Ford’s INNOVATION NATION – LIVE! will inspire audiences with entertaining and educational stories about yesterday and today’s visionaries and innovators.

Like the television show the live show will feature two correspondents (along with other cast members that are featured in various vignettes throughout the show) that will narrate the evening, engage with the audience and bridge between stories of innovators of the past and how they are influencing science, technology, agriculture, design, and social justice movements of today. Luminaries of the past including Henry Ford, The Wright Brothers, Rosa Parks and George Washington Carver among others will jump to life on stage. Their achievements will be highlighted and reflected by showing examples of present day innovations.

Recommended for ages 10 and up when accompanied by an adult.

Presented by John G. Ullman & Associates Foundation, Inc. Family Connection Series.
The carefully-curated programs in the three-show Family Connection Series will help connect families to the Clemens Center by attending together, and promote family conversation, critical thinking, and the simple enjoyment of the live performing arts.

Located in Mark Twain Country just south of the Finger Lakes, the Clemens Center is the region's premier performing arts center with two spectacular performance spaces. Mandeville Hall is a flexible, black box venue suitable for intimate performances, corporate events, and parties. The majestic Powers Theater is an architectural treasure that has been restored to its vaudevillian-era grandeur. Magnificent murals, gold-leaf details, and reconstructed opera boxes adorn the theater just as they did when it opened in 1925. The 1,618-seat venue has been called the most beautiful theatre between New York City and Buffalo—it is truly awe-inspiring! Renovation in 2008 included expanding the stage and upgrading technical equipment, making it possible to showcase the best in live entertainment. From nationally touring Broadway shows and dazzling dance programs to rousing rock 'n' roll concerts and feel-good family entertainment, the Clemens Center excites and delights audiences of all ages! The Center’s mission, though, extends beyond entertainment and into the community through school programs, outreach activities for the underserved, and subsidized facility rentals for its six Resident Companies: Common Time Choral Group, Elmira Little Theatre, New Heights Dance Theater, Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, Rafael Grigorian Ballet Theatre, and Thursday Morning Musicales. These nonprofit arts organizations provide community members with the opportunity to perform several times a year on a professional theatre stage. The Clemens Center is the perfect place to connect with family and friends and enjoy memorable experiences that enrich, inspire, and amaze.
