History to return to stage
Ballad of Black Jack is back
August 22, 2001
When the Maple Leaf Festival committee first asked local playwright Don Mueller to write a musical for the city’s centennial year in 1970, he liked the idea. With a $2,000 stipend from the committee, he set out to discover the history of the area. And as serendipity would have it, Baldwin City provided him with the perfect resource for the “Ballad of Black Jack,” a two-hour musical. “Baldwin City had a used bookshop for a few months back then, where the carpet place is today,” said Mueller. “And I walked in one day and I picked up a book, which opened automatically probably because all the kids had read that part of the history book to the story of Branson and Dow.” Mueller has the book, Four Centuries of Kansas History (written in 1944) which he bought for 10 cents readily accessible on his end table in his living room. “When I read this story, there was the plot of the show,” Mueller said. “An innocent man arrested for murder, and of course I made the victim his friend, and the rescue from Sheriff Jones by the good guys from Palmyra. Interestingly, the book store was there just long enough for me to buy this book.”
