Why We Chose to Program a Play About Eliza Haycraft…

Madam-The Musical is a totally new play we commissioned to end our 2019 season dedicated to the theme of The American Experience.  Back in March, we performed David Stanley Ford’s intense work The Interrogation of Nathan Hale as a way of exploring the idealistic aspirations of those who founded America- a nation that would treat all equally, be free from religious oppression and give every man a say in how the country would be run.  In subsequent productions, we revisited these aspirations through the eyes of some of those Americans- Fanny Kemble and the slaves she sought to free, Molly…

Our Season Opens With a Story About The First American Hero…

The Interrogation of Nathan Hale by Captain John Montresor Of HRM Expeditionary Force This powerful story is set in the tent of Captain John Montresor, an Engineer in the British Army who carried 21-year-old Nathan Hale’s dying declaration letter to his family under a flag of truce.  Because of this, we know a lot about the young man who became the first to be executed as a spy in the service of America.  In the hours leading up to his death, Montresor interviewed Hale as a means of trying to understand the motivations of those who would seek independence from…

Trees Die Standing Tall Opens This Week!

Alejandro Casona’s long and storied career as one of Spain’s great literary personalities in the 20th century may have made him a household name in both his native country and his adopted country of Argentina, but he is a relative unknown in the English-speaking world.  That’s why we’re so excited to bring this American premiere of the English-language translation by Lia Beeson to Hannibal’s BCT stage as the fourth offering in our season devoted to the theme of Faith. The plot is deceptively simple- a young grandson is banished from his ancestral home after he is discovered stealing and he…
