Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farms
Step back into Texas of the 1800;’s at this unique living history museum.
We have wonderful news for you today. We have been working for months to form a relationship with a new performance space and we are thrilled to announce that the Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farms with be partnering with us to co-produce our post-Civil War Macbeth in the fall of 2020. Their rich backdrop of historic buildings will provide the perfect touch of authenticity to our 19th century retelling of this classic Shakespearean tale.
Our Artistic Director Garrison Martt has a long history of producing small theatrical projects at Pioneer Farms and has formed a wonderful working relationship with this organization. We are thrilled to continue to develop our relationship with Pioneer Farms by producing the first full length play at their beautiful site. We are incredibly grateful Mike Ward, Claire Steffen, the Board of Directors of Pioneer Farms, and Rhonda Leggett for their advice and assistance in making this happen.
