Alliance for the Arts to present ‘Men On Boats’

By ALLIANCE FOR THE ARTS - | Jul 21, 2021


The Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers will present “Men On Boats,” written by Jaclyn Backhaus and directed by Rachael Endrizzi, on Oct. 21-23 and Oct. 28-30 at 7:30 p.m. and on Oct. 31 at 2 p.m.

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. “Men On Boats” is the true(ish) history 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. The outlandish crew encounters disaster, conflict and harrowing adventure along the way. Keeping with the tradition of Jaclyn Backhaus’ acclaimed play, the cast is composed entirely of women.

Starring Shelley Sanders, Anna Grilli, Anne Reed, Stacey Stouffer, Shaun Cott, Carmen Crussard, Holly Zammerilla, Kayleigh O’Connell and Tiffany Campbell.

The cost is $25 for members and $30 for non-members.
