Wild Swan Theater's Shipwrecked! at Towsley Auditorium in Ann Arbor

This coming-of-age tale brings suspense and drama to family audiences, March 14-16, 2013

All aboard! Join Aaron Buchanan – a 12-year-old boy – on his journey as he sails the waters of Lake Huron with his parents while transporting Christmas Trees from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. The trip, however, wouldn't be a drama if everything stayed in calm waters. Your kids will be on the edge of their seats as they watch the Buchanan's try to make it through Thunder Bay's infamous "Shipwreck Alley" in Shipwrecked! at the Towsley Auditorium in Ann Arbor, March 14-16, 2013.

Wild Swan Theater performs this show, and although this tale – written by playwright Jeff Duncan – may be set in 1893, the general theme of the play is applicable to today's younger generations, as well. Young Aaron Buchanan will teach your little ones that with bravery, perseverance and determination, all things can be conquered – even life's greatest storms.

Children in grades 3-8 will also get a better understanding of Michigan's history, geography, music and maritime heritage, because this play is based on historical accounts of the period. You might want to get a sitter for the wee little ones, though, because this content might be too much for them to fully grasp.

Don't miss out, and see what happens to Buchanan and his family at this thrill-filled show!

Individual tickets for classic series performances cost $12 for adults and $8 for kids. Tickets for adventure series performances are $15 for adults and $10 for kids. Tickets for children under the age of three cost $3. Season ticket holders, however, get 20 percent off of all shows and have premium, first-choice seating.

Show times for this play are as follows:

  • Thursday: 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
  • Friday: 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 2 p.m.
