History Alive – Minnie Pearl

June 2, 2018 @ 11:00 pm - June 3, 2018 @ 12:00 am

Enjoy an evening of laughs as we travel back in time enjoying memories of the great Minnie Pearl.

Sarah Colley studied theater while in college during the Great Depression intending to be a serious actress. While touring with a theater company she created the comedic down-home character of Minnie Pearl to help promote performances. Her first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry in 1940 was a success and eased fears that her satire of rural ways might not be appreciated by country audiences. People instead embraced Minnie as one of their own, and she became a legend in country entertainment.

Sarah was so proud to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame back in 1975. This was the first time that anyone that did comedy had that privilege. She was just happy to have a part in the country entertainment business.

Portrayed by Denise Giardina of Charleston
