Announcing the 2018-2019 Performance Season

Men on Boats

By Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Jay Putnam

In 1869, ten daring volunteers set out to explore the Colorado River and Grand Canyon for the very first time. (Kind of.) They rode rapids, scaled canyons, tamed wildlife, and left their mark on virgin territory, in a manner of speaking. Led by a one-armed captain, these Men on Boats battled nature, history, and their own cluelessness on this historic voyage. Join us on a hilarious adventure as a cast of ten fearless women recreate this daring expedition, offering gentle satire and timely perspective on what happens when you let men explore the world.

Performances at 7:30pm October 4-10.
