Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story

Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story

February 7

TTOK is happy to welcome Beau Dixon and his one man show, Beneath Springhill, for two presentations.

Beneath Springhill is the incredible story of Maurice Ruddick- ‘the singing miner’. The African Canadian saved the lives of six miners trapped one mile underground by keeping their spirits up through song and prayer for nine days. This one-man show written and performed by Beau Dixon- recalls the events during the historic Springhill mine disaster of 1958, the effect it had on the rural Canadian community, and the racial tension that grew from it.

Written and performed by Beau Dixon. Directed by Linda Kash. Music and lyrics by Rob Fortin and Susan Newman.
