Faces of Founders: Hiram, Maine THE MOVIE on May 13 at 6:00pm at the Arts Center at 8 Hancock Ave
Updated: Mar 25, 2022
Faces of Founders: Hiram, Maine iMOVIE, a partnership of Hiram Historical Society and the High School TV 2 Class of SAD55, will be shown May 13, 2022, at the Hiram Arts Center at 6:00pm – it was two years ago that a community theatrical event planned for this venue in May 2020 to celebrate the bicentennial of Maine statehood was cancelled because of COVID-19. The high school graciously offered to produce a modified version under severe pandemic restrictions – with students, in the school exclusively, but with scripts written by the author of Faces of Founders: Hiram, Maine published in late 2021.
In this production the teacher/moderator presents the facts about 15 founders – men, women, children – students in costume with photographic backgrounds briefly portray each settler telling what it was like to live in the nascent settlement, voicing opinions unbound from restraints of the book. Professional musicians, Hiram residents, perform Hiram music. This partnered production is unique in the state of Maine!
Free to all, music and refreshments of the period. FMI Sally Williams 207-615-4390 or email@example.com
