A Wilmington debut! 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. This astounding play casts all women to portray these intrepid conquerors of nature, in a wonderful blend of comedy, adventure, history and movement. An exhilarating take on the first official U.S. government-sponsored passage through the Grand Canyon, told through a brand new lens, as well as an exploration of how we look at history, and who we allow to tell it. Performance dates are Aug. 14-18, 22-25, & 29-Sept. 1 Show times are 8PM Thursday-Saturday, 3PM Sundays Tickets are $18 Thursdays, $22 Seniors/students/military, $25 General admission and can be purchased by calling 910-367-5237 or visiting
