Spring is just around the corner and The Bridge Street History Center will resume our normal schedule of opening on Saturdays from 1-5pm starting March 2, 2019. We’ve had a busy off season planning a spectacular line up of events as the year progresses.
As we come to the end of another year, we’re reminded of how fortunate we are to have the support of our community and the legacy of the folks who founded and built what we enjoy today.
The Board of The Bridge Street History Center would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Playwright Mary Barile, the cast, crew, director and all who attended the recently concluded concert reading of The Great Texas Feud at Granbury Live. Also thanks to the City of Granbury for their support, the staff of Granbury Live, Stage Manager Teresa Sims, Maurice Walton and Roger Enlow for introductions…an amazing job by all.
Special Thanks to: Granbury Theatre Company, Drenda Lewis, Lake Granbury Medical Center, Lakeside Physicians, The New Granbury Live, Shad Ramsey, Hood County News, Teri Ewing
Cast and Director:
L-R Ridge Roberts (Fiddler), Brian Lawson (Bill Mitchell), Sam Houston (Nelson “Cooney” Mitchell, Judge Ralph Walton (The Judge), Phil Groeschel (Director), Josh Leblo (James Truitt), Dr. Tom Hamilton (Alexander McCamant, Court Clerk), J.D. Choate (Various local characters who had connection to the events portrayed).
The Great Texas Feud concert reading presentation at Granbury Live is an entertaining, informative and unique presentation of the trial of Nelson “Cooney” Mitchell, the only person legally hung in Hood County Texas. The cast of local characters, along with period music performed by World Champion Fiddler Ridge Roberts lends an authentic and genuine feel, and the intimate setting of the Granbury Live venue is perfect as the audience becomes the jury deciding if Cooney’s fate was deserved…or not, based on the evidence presented by testimony of the various colorful witnesses. There are still tickets available for the final performance on October 21st, 2018 so don’t miss the chance to vote on Ol’ Cooney’s guilt or innocence.
