NEVADA CITY, Calif July 15, 2019 – Alaska Revisited returns after a 5-year hiatus and is the true story of Nevada County resident, Reinette Senum.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of her 1994 solo winter crossing of Alaska, Reinette Senum returns with her inspiring one-woman show, Alaska Revisited.
Three Performances Only: Tuesday, July 16th, 7-9pm, Tuesday, September 24th, 7-9pm, Sunday matinee, November 3rd, 2-4pm at the Nevada Theater, 401 Broad St. Nevada City, CA. Tickets available online or at the door.
Humorous and animated in its telling, Alaska Revisited is the true story of a young woman whose search for answers about her family roots leads her into the Alaskan wilderness. Traveling over 1,500 miles alone and hauling a 160 lb. sled this 27-year-old self-made pioneer finds joy and indescribable strength as she struggles with the unforgiving elements. Battling sub-freezing temperatures, exhaustion, and the vast loneliness of the Alaskan wilderness Senum navigates her way down the frozen Yukon River with trials and triumphs hers alone. This one-woman show features photos, National Geographic footage, and colorful anecdotes from the expedition. A wonderful tale for all ages, Senum weaves a courageous, heartfelt tale about self-discovery and the power of the human spirit.
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Nirmala Nataraj asserts the story harkens back to “the kind you read about in heroes’ journeys and classic Jack London stories about survival and peril in the wilderness… revealing a piece about self-discovery, courage and the kind of epic-scale adventure we rarely encounter.”
