The Mineral Area Council on the Arts has tickets on sale now for an entertaining one-woman performance highlighting the life of Missouri-native, Molly Brown, scheduled in the new year.

The Life and Times of the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown will be rescheduled from Friday, Jan. 18, and will now be performed at 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 25, due to inclement weather. The performance will be held in the Mineral Area College Fine Arts Theater. Tickets are $7 adults and $5 students, available at Eventbrite.com or at the Mineral Area College bookstore. Tickets already purchased for the event will be honored on the night of the 25th. Seating is general admission and doors will open at 6:30 pm.

Hannibal, Missouri-based historian, Lisa Marks, brings the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown to life in this lively — yet historically authentic — performance. 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 searching for the road to love, wealth and fame; her poignant, 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 socioeconomic and cultural 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.

Arts Council Director Danielle Basler said, “the cultural organization, located at Mineral Area College, is excited to be presenting this performance by a Missouri-based artist.”

“It’s important that community arts organizations support both artist and audience,” she said. “This program is an opportunity for us to present a quality program by a regional artist that we believe our community will really enjoy.”

The performance is financed in part by the Missouri Arts Council, who support the work of artists in our state with their Touring Performers directory and grant programs.

“Our organization is grateful for the resources that the Missouri Arts Council provides which helps us continue to bring quality arts programming—including that of Missouri artists— to our community each year,” Basler said. Please join us for the rescheduled performance. We hope to see you then!
