Hackmatack Presents THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, Now thru 8/30
An NBC TV play in 1953, on Broadway that same year, a movie in 1985, revived with Tony awards on Broadway last year, playing in Los Angeles next month, and then Boston in November, you can catch "The Trip to Bountiful" now at Hackmatack Playhouse in Berwick.
The part of Carrie Watts is being played by Sharon Hilton, a name synonymous with the Hackmatack having been involved with the playhouse since it's inception in 1972. It was just recently announced by Hackmatack Executive Producer and owner Michael Guptill that Sharon Hilton will be stepping down as Hackmatack Artistic Director at the end of this season after having that position for the past 12 years.
"Sharon has been the foundation to our artistic integrity over the past few years" according to Guptill. "She has insisted on a high level of professionalism and loyalty and is a true believer in the collaborative production process".
