Erin Kelley as Margaret Tobin Brown

Welcome to Gilded Age Stage based in Hannibal, MO! Take a seat and get to know an intriguing person from the past...and sometimes, a person from the present with an intriguing past! Our inaugural show features Hannibal's own Margaret Tobin (Molly) Brown, the extraordinary woman beyond the Titanic's most famous survivor.

"MARGARET: The Incredible Molly Brown" enjoyed a successful run at Planter's Barn Theater in Hannibal last August and September and was performed aboard the Melody and America for American Cruise Lines in October and November. The show is currently available for schools, groups, and events in Hannibal and beyond. Please contact us to learn more!
