Hackmatack Presents THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL 8/20-30

One more show before the season wraps at Hackmatack. "The Trip to Bountiful" opens this week at Hackmatack Playhouse in Berwick. It runs Wednesday, August 20 through Saturday, August 30. Shows are Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm with Thursday matinees at 2:00.This heartwarming story set in the 1940's is of an elderly woman (Carrie Watts) who desires to visit the town where she grew up but is stopped by her meddling daughter-in-law and overprotective son. Determined, Carrie makes the trip and finds new friends along the road, but discovers that the town she once knew, is no more.

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".
