THIS WEEK’S HIGHLIGHTS
World Premiere of ACROSS A LITTLE RED MARKER
The year is 1988, when George H.W. Bush will be elected President, the Edmonton Oilers will trade Wayne Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings and the enacting of a new trade agreement waits, which will change things for the U.S.-Canada border. Nadine works as a U.S. Border Inspector, serving and protecting her Port of Entry with an authoritative, no-nonsense style. However, a health scare causes the single mother and Vietnam widow to pursue a life insurance policy. When she meets Mr. Hayden, a duplicitous insurance agent with a dark and hidden agenda, Nadine soon finds her life and the world around her spiraling out of control in this “Coen Brothers meets Chekov crime-drama.”

“Don’t miss Craig’s unforgettable true story.”

Craig Nelson gets nauseous near heights, claustrophobic in tight spaces, and he’s afraid of the water.
His rescue specialties are high level, enclosed space, and swift water.
“A true story, an incredible one-man show.”
Craig Nelson takes the 3 am phone call. He’s the volunteer rescuer we hear about in the news. He’s the unsung hero who brings the worst news a family ever receives.
His rescues these days include his family and friends for whom he is always there and his dogs who no one wanted. He is always there for the troubled stranger.
Craig Nelson is currently working with several entities in the federal government improving America’s food safety and countering Bioterrorism. He’s a much sought after speaker on a variety of topics nationwide.
Craig is a new actor. I work with him as teacher and director. If you haven”t met him, tonight you will. If you have met him, tonight you’ll meet him anew.
Craig Nelson trained, taught and, was often called into duty for special rescue missions for many years. He oversaw the safety and security of swift water events including Canoe and Kayak World Cups, Pam Am, Olympic Training Sites, and the 1996 Olympic games. On various occasions he and his teams were called in when local departments couldn’t find or reach someone trapped or lost.
This show comes from his experiences…
