In 1972, the newly-formed Hanson Recreation Department produced its first play, Peter Pan, at Maquan Elementary School. After several venue changes and over 90 productions later, Hanson Recreation Drama has found a new home at the Needles Lodge. Staging adventures (Cyrano De Bergerac), mysteries (Deathtrap), musicals (Fiddler on the Roof), comedies (Arsenic and Old Lace), and everything in between, Hanson Recreation Drama is now more popular than ever!
