Melodrama: Because Their Hearts Were Pure; or, The Secret of the Mine.

Melodrama: Because Their Hearts Were Pure; or, The Secret of the Mine.
by: Morland Cary

Directed by: Missy Hendrick
Produced by: Barbara Seagren

PowPAC’s 10th annual melodrama, “Because Their Hearts Were Pure; or, the Secret of the Mine” by Morland Cary is a family-friendly show that encourages audience participation.

The plot: Blissfully betrothed Goodwin Dalrymple (YAY!) and Melody Truelove (SIGH!) are future heirs to the coal mine jointly owned by their widowed mothers.

A bright life stretches before them… until the evil banker, Sebastian Hardacre (BOO)/HISS!), forecloses on the widows.

Will heartless Hardacre jeopardize the young couple’s dreams... or will heroic Goodwin save the day?
