Armchair Adventurer

Nansen of the North
This show received rave reviews at its premiere in Portland and now we're bringing it to the The Cascade Theatre in Bend, Oregon on April 14, 2017.
Before Amundsen, before Scott, before Shackleton, there was Fridtjof Nansen, the great Norwegian, the Father of polar travel, the one who showed them all how it could be done. Adventurer. Scientist. Explorer. Humanitaran. Nansen, who made the first ever crossing of Greenland on ski. Nansen, who locked his ship in the Arctic ice and tried to drift over the Pole. Nansen, who famously said that it is better to go skiing and think about God than it is to go to church and think about skiing.

Join us in Bend for a brand new installment in the Armchair Adventurer series: Nansen of the North. Bob Hicks of Oregon Arts Watch wrote a beautiful review, Fridtjof Nansen's Polar Express. Read it here.

Audience member, Holly Wenger, told us, "I was completely engulfed by the story and mesmerized by Lawrence's spectacular delivery. Loved the historic photo montage to peruse pre- or post-show. Great evening. Go see this show!"
