‘Tales of an Urban Indian,’ Down by the River in Hannibal this Weekend
A unique theatrical presentation and a couple of monthly events highlight the goings-on in Hannibal this weekend.
The Bluff City Theater's production of "Tales of an Urban Indian" continues, with additional dates being added due to popular demand. The one-man play features Daniel Dennis, who also wrote the play. What's unique is that the play is performed on a moving transit bus. That means, obviously, that seating is limited for each performance.
The monthly Down By the River event is Friday, July 11 at the YMen's Pavilion at 100 Hill St. The Cheeseburgers provide the music, with food, drink and a good time starting at 5 p.m.
Saturday is the Second Saturday Gallery Walk in downtown Hannibal. The downtown galleries will be open from 5-8 p.m. for tours, food and prizes.
Also happening Saturday is the opening reception for the "Miniature but Mighty," exhibit at the Hannibal Arts Council, featuring mini masterpieces by Wes and Rachel Siegrist and other local artists.
And, Mark Twain scholar and author Jocelyn Chadwick speaks in the topic, "Twain, Huck Finn and the Art of Friendship; How Exploring Mark Twain Can Help Us Understand Friendship in the 21st Century." That will be Saturday in the Mark Twain Museum Gallery.
