Minnetrista expands its live theatre with a show from Ford’s Theatre

Muncie, IN— For the summer of 2012, Minnetrista is offering a theatrical performance from Ford’s Theatre: ONE DESTINY by Richard Hellesen.


Learn about Lincoln’s assassination from the portrayal of two men who were there. Actor Harry Hawk and Ford’s Theatre co-owner Harry Ford revisit April 14, 1865. As they reconstruct what happened that evening, they grapple with the question: Could John Wilkes Booth have been stopped? This 35-minute presentation explores the facts of the assassination while capturing the emotions of that fateful night. This performance is recommended for audiences ages 8 and up.


This work was written by a New York playwright and has been performed exclusively by Ford’s Theatre and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. This is the first time the show has been available in Indiana and Ohio.


Minnetrista Theatre Preserves is available for bookings through August 31, Monday through Friday. This performance can be used for special events, summer reading programs or for a family program. To book your performance, please contact Josh Moore at 765-287-3529.
