One of Hannibal’s own, Margaret Tobin (Molly) Brown is perhaps best known as the most famous survivor of the Titanic and a tall-tale caricature in the stage and film versions of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” However, she was oh, so much more: activist, philanthropist, political candidate, accomplished vocalist and actor, world traveler, and dedicated wife and mother. In short, a stellar fixture of American and women’s history!
This engagement runs from August 4 – September 4, 2021. Tickets are $20 and are available online.
Written and performed by Erin Kelley, professional theatre artist of 35 years and founder of Gilded Age Stage.
Join us September 3-6, 2021 in Hannibal for the Annual Big River Steampunk Festival. Steampunk can be called “Victorian Science Fiction.” It’s a reimagining of history – Steampunkers are creative people who immerse themselves in the Victorian era, imagining what life would be like if the steam power of the Industrial revolution fueled by modern and futuristic technology. It’s also a celebration of invention, the art of science woven into creative gadgets and costumes that recalls the elegance and romance of the Wild West and the Gilded Age coupled with the wonder of new inventions and technology to expand the possibilities of human existence (such as time travel).
