is an outdoor historical pageant performed annually in Buchanan, Georgia.
Based on The 1856 Handbook, winner
in 2007 of the Georgia Historical Society's prestigious Roger K. Warlick Award,
this entertainment features the exciting three-way race for the US Presidency
in 1856, the year Haralson County was created.
Decision 1856 maintains an archive
including an album of its first (2006) performance
This play is an excellent opportunity to build one's theatrical credentials.
We are immediately seeking actors, singers, musicians, costume-makers,
writers and others to help us create and stage a second version of this work
in September 2007 at the annual Fall Fair on the Square in Buchanan,
a small town at the edge of metro Atlanta and the seat of Haralson County.
While we cannot afford to pay wages, modest FUNDS are available for supplies
and co-sponsors are being recruited. Experience the artistic freedom of
helping us shape the future of this new-born artwork. And gain the
satisfaction of possibly building the momentum needed to turn this community
theatre into a professional enterprise.
If you would like to participate, or are just curious, please contact
Ron Feigenblatt at the Haralson County
Historical Society by any of several means:
- Telephone: 770-646-3369
