Thanks to the support of the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, the Hebron Historical Society has received a Culture Tourism Partnership Grant to partially fund the historical play, Quest for Home.

Quest for Home Receives State Grant

The Hebron Historical Society is pleased to announce that they have received a Culture Tourism Partnership Grant for the upcoming play, Quest for Home. Partnering with the Society for this event are the RHAM Drama Club and the Hebron Historic Properties Commission.

“We are very grateful to the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism for their support of this project,” said RHAM Middle School teacher Karl Jancis, who is directing the play. “We look forward to enhancing this historic play with better technology and enhanced sets and properties.”

Quest for Home will be presented at the RHAM Auditorium on Friday and Saturday, November 7 and 8 beginning at 7:30 p.m. The play, originally written by Coventry resident Burton E. Moore, was a popular event in Hebron’s celebrations of its 250th anniversary of incorporation in 1958. “Mr. Jancis and I have updated the play and added a new closing scene,” said Donna McCalla of the Hebron Historical Society, which is producing Quest. “We believe it will be and entertaining and educational experience for those who participate in the event and for those who attend our showings.”

Comprised of two acts and 24 scenes, the play will feature a cast of about 65 and a production crew of 30. Casting and auditions for parts will be held in late August and early September. “We are already planning the sets and properties that will be used in the play, and we need the community’s assistance for getting those ready,” said Jancis.

Residents and students who are interested in participating in this theatrical event are encouraged to contact Jancis at 228-9423, or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

All age groups are needed. “We’ve received a number of inquiries through our website expressing interest in the play, and we’ll be contacting those people in about a month,” said McCalla.
