The Life and Times of the ‘Unsinkable’ Molly Brown Coming to the Hannibal Arts Council
The Hannibal Arts Council will host a performance of 'The Life and Times of Molly Brown' on Sunday, February 8 at 2 p.m.
Molly Brown will be brought to life in an historically accurate portrayal by the Hannibal History Museum's Lisa Marks.
Hear stories from Margaret Tobin Brown's amazing life: her birth in Hannibal, Missouri in 1867 and childhood years during Hannibal's Gilded Age; her migration to Colorado in 1886; her poignant, sometimes heart-wrenching experiences aboard Titanic; the years of fighting for Women's Suffrage, fairness in the juvenile justice system, the rights of workers, child labor laws, and so much more. Learn the factors that shaped Margaret during her childhood in Hannibal and life during the Progressive Era of America, leading her to not only become the heroine of the Titanic tragedy but also one of the most important human rights activists and social reformers of her generation." - Hannibal Arts Council.
Admission to 'The Life and Times of Molly Brown' will be $15. All proceeds will benefit the Hannibal History Museum. 'The Life and Times of Molly Brown' is sponsored by the Hannibal Arts Council and James O’Donnell Funeral Home.
