Second Saturday
"STORM: A Sneak Preview" 
with Ric Mixter

   On July 15th the State Theatre will be a virtual time machine.. journeying 300 years on the Great Lakes from the first French ships to the discovery of the ill-fated Titanic.  Each of these vessels have connections to our area, and historian Ric Mixter will share these stories in a way only he can- with humor and underwater video he has recorded in his many inland sea adventures.

  Join Ric as he previews the Tall Ship's concert with a behind the scenes look at the stories and anecdotes that happen along the way. He will also discuss his latest search for the Edward Skeels, which was lost in northern Lake Huron along with the amazing photos that chronicle the ship's loss. 


  STORM tickets are on sale now with special student discounts and a showtime of 7pm on July 15th.  Seating is limited to the first 300 people.. so advanced tickets are your only guarantee to be there in person.


 Seating is limited for our Second Saturday presentations...so come early to assure your seat!
