Omaha, NE–Men on Boats will open Friday, May 3 at the Omaha Community Playhouse. The show runs in the Howard Drew Theatre from May 3-26, 2019. Performances will be Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm.
Adventure, bravery, and humorous absurdity–led by an all-female cast–Men on Boats is the “true-ish” story of ten explorers on four boats charting the course of the Colorado River in 1869. Guided by a one-armed captain, the outlandish, but loyal, crew encounters various disasters, conflicts, and harrowing adventures along the way.
