The producers of the outdoor drama “Tecumseh!” are almost at the midway point in efforts to raise funds they lost by not having the show in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Scioto Society has thus far raised $600,000 of the nearly $1.3 million in lost revenues, according to CEO Brandon Smith.

Smith told Litter Media Monday morning, that tickets are already on sale for the 2021 season, which will run June 17th through September 5th.

The show has already received a variance on crowd size from the Ross County Health District, which is comparable to the 30% maximum crowd capacity size for outdoor entertainment events announced last week by Governor Mike DeWine.

Scioto Society’s lone fundraiser this year will be The Pour House Bourbon Dinner, slated for March 25th. It will include a virtual silent auction. Tickets for this fundraiser are available through the Pour House at Machinery Hall.
