Written by Jaclyn Backhaus and directed by Chanel Volpel, MEN ON BOATS is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition when a one-armed captain and an insane yet adventurous crew set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Inspired by John Wesley Powell’s actual travel logs, Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theatre, performed by a diverse cast of women who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of satire. Staged in the intimate surroundings at the Whitewater Music Hall as part of Wausau Community Theatre's "Theatre on the Side" series, audiences will feel the speed and force of white-water rapids and the sensation of perilous canyons and death-defying cliffs created out of sheer imagination, shaping an innovative theatrical experience.

American Sign Language student interpreters will be available to interpret at the Saturday evening performance.
