Drama Dept. Presents Premiere of “Men on Boats” 11/21-24; Be a Sponsor

The St. Charles Preparatory School Drama Department is proud to announce its fall production, the Columbus and Central Ohio premiere of Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus. Men on Boats will be presented Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 21, 22, & 23 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 24 at 3:00 p.m. in the St. Charles Campus Theatre. Adult tickets are $10 each, and student tickets are $5 each. Reservations may be placed by calling the St. Charles main office at 614/252-6714 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

In 1869, one-armed explorer John Wesley Powell and his crew of nine men in four boats went down the Colorado River into the Grand Canyon, not knowing what lay ahead. This great adventure is reenacted by 13 actors — the rapids, the rations, and the ride of their lives. An ingenious, hilarious, and brilliant new play, Men On Boats brings to life the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition like you have never seen it before.
