A solo piece announced at the Morris Museum

Set during the Golden Age of Antarctic Exploration (1901-1916), discover the captivating stories of Tom Crean. He was the only man to have served alongside Scott and Shackleton on three of the most daring and difficult expeditions to the great white continent, including Shackleton’s ill-fated Endurance Expedition.

Crean’s story is a testament to human strength against all the elements of Antarctica. The play takes you to the edge of your seat and beyond as it re-enacts many of the heroic endeavors of the time. This includes Crean’s infamous 36-mile solitary trek to base camp on the Terra Nova expedition to rescue his comrades – described by Antarctic historians as “the finest feat of individual heroism in all the age of exploration”.

The show, Discovering Antarctica: Heroic Tales of Shackleton, Crean & Scott, received critical acclaim, multiple awards and continues to enjoy sold-out performances and standing ovations. After touring the world, including a stopover in Antarctica, nearly a quarter of a million people have been captivated by the spectacle and the heroic stories it brings to life.

Theatergoers can continue their Arctic adventure with the Museum’s exhibit, Stowed Away: A Traveling Philographist and his Arctic Uke. Stowed Away explores the story behind the ukulele that “stowed away” during Admiral Richard Byrd’s North Pole flight in 1926. The ukulele belonged to Richard Konter, a Navy veteran of the Spanish American War and of World War I, who participated in Byrd’s Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. For years after the flight, Konter used this instrument as an unusual “autograph book”, collecting the signatures of more than 150 people – from royalty to presidents, explorers to generals, scientists to politicians – who added their names to this unique arctic artifact. the story.
