Event Description

Shipwrecked! is a stirring coming of age drama set during a fierce winter storm on Lake Huron in 1893. Twelve year old Aaron Buchanan, sailing with his parents on their small schooner loaded with Christmas trees from Sault Ste. Marie, is tested in ways he never dreamed possible when a ferocious gale suddenly materializes in Thunder Bay’s infamous “Shipwreck Alley.” Inspired by the desperate circumstances, he finds the sailing skills, bravery, and physical strength to help achieve the daring rescue of his family. This original drama, written by long-time Wild Swan playwright Jeff Duncan, is based on historical accounts of the period and provides students with a valuable opportunity to explore the Great Lakes and Michigan’s history, geography, music, and maritime heritage. Enrich your experience with additional curriculum-aligned materials about our inland seas developed in collaboration with the Detroit Historical Society/Dossin Great Lakes Museum, Michigan Historical Center, Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Michigan Geographic Alliance, and Michigan Council for History Education.

Recommended for grades 3-8.
