Re-enactors Special Appearances as Historical Characters


Titanic Event Corinthian Hall

Shortly after the release of the blockbuster 1997 movie, a Titanic event was held at Corinthian Hall in Northeast Kansas City.  The event was the brainchild of volunteer Program Director and Friends of Corinthian Hall Board Member, Bonnie Hansen, (owner Vintage Nouveau) under the leadership of President Dot Buell.  It turned out  to be perhaps the most successfully attended and colorful event in the history of the Friends organization.  This sold out, standing room-only event featured noted Titanic Historian Michael Rudd as guest speaker.  Each arriving guest was given a White Star Line boarding pass with the  name of a Titanic passenger, while live music from the White Star Line song book played in the background.  The buffet was inspired by menu selections served on the ill-fated liner the night the ship went down.  A local chocolatier donated a chocolate version of the vessel.  Door prizes included Titanic-related books and music.  Many guests arrived in period clothing, and Vintage Nouveau provided period re-enactors.  The museum also featured a display of 1912-era clothing at the top of the grand staircase.  Titled An Evening of Edwardian Elegance,  the idea was to draw attention to the Beaux Arts architecture of Corinthian Hall and compare it to the grandeur of the Titanic.  The event was a tremendous success and helped promote this historic old home owned by Lumber Baron R. A. Long and his famous daughter Loula Long Combs.
