The Western Stage Presents "Men on Boats"

Saturday, October 26, 2019 8:00 AM - Sunday, November 10, 2019 5:00 PM (PDT)


The Western Stage presents "Men on Boats" By Jaclyn Backhaus Studio Theater | Oct. 26, 27, Nov. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10 (Join us for ReActions Sunday, October 27!). Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m. Order tickets online at or call our box office: 831-759-6816 (Wednesday - Saturday, 5 - 8 p.m.) Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above. Pack your gear for the true(ish) history of 19th-century American explorer and one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, who assembles a brawny band of soldiers, trappers, and adventurers to explore the waterways of the American West. Inspired by Powell’s actual travel log from 1869. Laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a diverse cast of not-men who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext. This event is wheelchair accessible. Individuals requiring sign-language interpreters, real-time captioners, or other accommodations should contact the Box Office at least one week prior to the event: 831-755-6816 or
