Chamberlain: A Civil War Romance

June 25 – July 12, 2014

Chamberlain: A Civil War Romance brings the life of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain to the stage.  The story centers on his relationship with his wife, Fannie, and explores the trials and tribulations of a man committed to his family as well as his country. Developed for MSMT, the production had its World Premiere on the Pickard stage in 1996. It is the only show in MSMT history to completely sell out before the run of the show began. Chamberlain focuses on the courage, honor, and humility of a hero still relevant in today’s society.
