My name is Curt Himmelberger. I'm honored to be the new artistic director of Beacon Theatre Productions, and I want to share some exciting updates.
BTP celebrated its tenth year as a non-profit theatre company and continued its mission of providing accessible theatre that educates, inspires, and challenges. Georgina Bard boldly led the company through the pandemic producing three virtual shows in 2021: Edmonia about Edmonia Lewis, History Theatre Time Travel Experience about Frederick Douglass and Jo Ann Robinson, and Truth and Hamer featuring Dr. Daisy Century as Sojourner Truth and Terri Lyons as Fannie Lou Hamer.
We also produced A Thousand Fibers, a play developed through our three-year Fairhill Theatre Project. It was inspired by stories from the Fairhill Community and featured a community art exhibit.
