A recent project and Theater production entitled “The Sultana”,

The overloaded steamboat Sultana is seen at Helena, Arkansas, on the Mississippi River on April 26, 1865. The next day the steamer’s boilers exploded, killing upwards of 1,800 people. About 500 people survived. The forgotten event of the ‘Sultana and the tragic lives that were lost can be aligned with another major ‘nautical’ fatal tragedy “The sinking of the Titanic”, an Ocean liner of immense proportions which was perceived as ‘Unsinkable”.
An East Texas playwright and historians around the South are hoping a new community theater musical will, at long last, bring attention to the worst maritime disaster in American history.
Cherokee Civic Theatre in Rusk will premier Minette Bryant’s musical “Sultana” on Feb 15. It is the first play written about the 1865 explosion of the steamboat of the same name. More people were killed aboard the Sultana than in the sinking of the Titanic.
“Everything about this story is fascinating,” Bryant said. “The fact is that it isn’t told; it isn’t known; it isn’t widely talked about and portrayed in any way. It’s time. Something more needs to be done. If all I can do is this little area, this will be great,” Bryant said.
The story of the Sultana is filled with the trappings of a Oscar-winning Hollywood blockbuster — senseless tragedy facing men returning home from war, greed, hope, sorrow, perseverance, and a miscarriage of justice. Yet far fewer people know about the Sultana than the Titanic, the subject of the 1997 three-hour epic love story by James Cameron.
“What we need for people to learn about the Sultana is something like they did with the Titanic. It sounds like she’s done it with this musical. People don’t know about the Sultana at all,” said Rosalind O’Neal with the Sultana Disaster Museum in Marion, Arkansas.
“I understand that at the time people were in news overload. There was so much going on. They were so saturated in tragedy. What’s our excuse now? Where’s the box office blockbuster with a sweeping John Williams score for this tragedy? We are the first one to bring this to the stage,” Bryant said.
Bryant is surprised when she meets anyone who has heard of the Sultana, let alone anyone who has studied it’s plight at great length. That subject matter is typically left to descendants of survivors and a niche group of historians who specialize in the western theater of the Civil War.
We feel honored to have someone of Minette’s talents on board, and we know that her accomplishments in so many areas will be numerous over the ensuing years, and her talented and notable accomplishments will be impacting on the various platforms she is involved with.
