Men On Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus

Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward’s University presents Men On Boats, by Jaclyn Backhaus, running November 8 – 18, 2018.

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the true-ish story of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Join these courageous explorers as they risk it all in this rapid theatrical ride. MMNT welcomes guest director Shawn Sides (Rude Mechanicals) to steer this adventurous production. Featuring guest artists Tyler Layton and kt shorb. Performances are Thursday – Saturday evenings
