Now Playing - Mine Eyes Hath Seen

This April marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the U.S. Civil War. Banshee's marking the occasion by bringing back to the stage it's extraordinary piece, Mine Eyes Hath Seen.

Click here for even more information about Mine Eyes Hath Seen.

Mine Eyes Hath Seen brings the epic conflict of the US Civil War to life solely through period music and the first-person writings of the men and women who lived through it. Alternately humorous, heartrending and horrific, the letters, memoirs and tales of the War Between the States cast history in a personal and accessible light. Wrenching agonies and history-making triumphs shine in the very words of those who lived history first-hand. Confederate and Union, slave and widow, all take to the stage to share an experience so profound it leaves history books in the dust.

***Special April 9th Performance***
On April 9, 1865, Robert E. Lee surrendered his forces to the Union, effectively ending the Civil War. To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of this key moment, Banshee has added a special Thursday performance on April 9. Audiences joining us that night will enjoy a special treat (either Confederate or Union) and a libation and join the cast in a toast to honor the courageous men and women whose words still ring loud and true 150 years later. Tickets for the special April 9th performance are $30.

This spring marks Theatre Banshee's 20th anniversary. It also marks the 10th anniversary of Banshee's original production of Mine Eyes Hath Seen. This extraordinary show was Banshee's best-attended production of all time. It opens at the Banshee March 28, 2015 for an eight week run. Don't miss it!
