The Cyanide Ball – An inspiration for TREADWELL GOLD

amy Productions, Season 16-17

In one of our favorite moments in Treadwell Gold, the character of Hanna–in her role as the Independence Day Goddess of Liberty–recites a poem, “Turning Rock into Gold.” The source of the poem, courtesy of Sheila Kelly’s book came from the dance program from the 1910 “Cyanide Ball,” a dance in celebration of the technology that made mining in Treadwell possible.
