Description

Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (FANs) is pleased to offer a very special program at Crooked River Ranch. Armchair Adventurer Lawrence Howard from Portland Story Theatre will tell the story of “Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare.”

Shackleton’s Antarctic Nightmare is the gripping, heart-breaking, true story of British explorer, Ernest Shackleton, and the Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914. Shackleton’s dream of being the first to cross the Antarctic continent on foot became a nightmare when his valiant ship, The Endurance, was crushed in the pack-ice of the Weddell Sea. The story of how he and the 27 men of the expedition survived on the ice and eventually came to safety is an epic tale of hardship and suffering, of courage, determination and fortitude.

This is the show that launched the Armchair Adventurer series. It is a tribute to Howard’s father, Marty. “This show is very near and dear to my heart,” says Howard, “because my father and I shared a lifelong passion for the Shackleton story, and I like to weave a few threads about him into the telling.”

Refreshments will be served after this event. Doors open at 3:30 pm. Tickets for this program cost $15 for FANs members and $18 for non-members who register in advance. Tickets are non-refundable. If the show is not sold out, tickets can be purchased at the door for $20. Seating is limited to 75 people.

Portland Story Theater is a 501c3 non-profit organization and part of their mission is to make this art form accessible.

This event is sponsored by Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (FANs), a group founded in 2011 by landowners surrounding the Deschutes Canyon-Steelhead Falls Wilderness Study Area in Central Oregon who came together over their shared love of nearby public lands. The focus area of FANs includes many special places such as Steelhead Falls, Alder Springs, the Peninsula, Otter Bench and Scout Camp. FANs membership forms will be available at this presentation. You can also become a member by visiting our website at www.fansofdeschutes.org. We look forward to seeing you at this event!
