Hannibal, Missouri, May 16, 2014 (McKenzieNewsService.com) – Professional theater is returning to historic Hannibal July 9-27th, with the launch of a new non-profit company called Bluff City Theater, 212 Broadway Ave. It’s first production- Darrell Dennis’ Tales of an Urban Indian, promises to move audiences both figuratively and literally because it will be performed entirely on a moving transit bus as it travels through the streets of the city.
According to executive director Joe Anderson, Tales of an Urban Indian was chosen for two reasons. “First, because we do not have a permanent performance venue yet, we wanted something that would still allow us to introduce ourselves to the community this summer. It helps that Tales is a wonderfully thought-provoking play that represents the kind of innovation we hope to bring to everything we do,” he says.
Initially staged on a moving bus in 2009, Tales of an Urban Indian became a smash hit and ran for 70 performances. It is the story of Simon Douglas, a contemporary Native male born on a reserve in British Columbia and raised both on the reserve and in the city of Vancouver, Canada. Simon’s friends on the reserve, his mother, grandmother, girlfriends and every other character are portrayed through Simon’s mimicry.
Tales of an Urban Indian is an emotional, funny and uplifting experience that leaves audiences spellbound. An initial block of tickets are now on sale for July 12 through 27th. Tickets $24.75 each. Show times are Wednesday to Sunday, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
