NORTH CREEK — Our Town Theatre Group will sponsor Pendragon Theatre’s production of “Terra Nova,” a riveting play about the race to the South Pole from 1910 to 1912 on Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Tannery Pond Community Center.
In the winter of 1911-1912, five Englishmen and five Norwegians raced each other to the bottom of the earth. Only the five Norwegians returned. This is the story of the Englishmen. In honor of the expedition’s centennial, Pendragon is staging Ted Tally’s compelling look at heroism under adverse and deadly conditions.
Mr. Tally (who also wrote The Silence of the Lambs) took the play from journals and letters found on the frozen body of British expedition leader Robert Scott. His team refused the use of sled dogs, so were forced to drag their gear across a frozen wasteland, only to find that the Norwegian team arrived before them.
For tickets, call 406-8840 or email your ticket order to OTTGTickets@gmail.com.
The cost is Adults $15; Students $8. The event is sponsored by Natural Stone Bridge & Caves Park.
Pendragon Theatre, based in Saranac Lake, receives funding from the New York State Council on the Arts.
