Meadows School of the Arts presents Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus

Feb. 26-March 1
Wednesday-Saturday at 8 pm with 2 pm matinees on Saturday and Sunday

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats is the true(ish) history of the famous 1869 expedition where a one-armed captain (Major John Wesley Powell) and a crew of volunteers set out to map the course of the Colorado River. Backhaus reinvents this slice of American history through a hilariously cockeyed ViewMaster to examine issues of identity, gender, community, and what we mean by “history.” “… funny and relevant…both the journey and the destination.
