On Arctic Ground: Exploring the Furthest Reaches of Wild Alaska

Tuesday, October 30th @ 7:00 PM @ Camelot Theatres
Purchase tickets at Camelot Box Office or online with ShowClix

In the far northwest corner of Alaska lies “the Reserve,” a 23-million acre stretch of uninterrupted wilderness marked by pristine rivers, massive bluffs, and expansive stretches of open tundra. Home to America’s largest caribou herd, grizzly bears, birds, and the world’s largest Arctic dinosaur bone bed, the Alaska National Petroleum Reserve is the largest single unit of public lands in the United States — an exquisite place with an unfortunate name that few people will ever have the opportunity to visit.

On Tuesday, October 30, 2012, The Palm Springs Cultural Center invites everyone to experience this amazing and pristine part of our country’s public lands through a very special multimedia presentation of On Arctic Ground: Exploring the Furthest Reaches of Wild Alaska. The program, which will be presented by Author and Adventurer Debbie S. Miller, will take place at the Camelot Theatres at 7pm, and will be followed by a book signing with the author.

Blues for Willadean is the film adaptation of Del Shores’ 2003 play “The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife.” It explores the hidden emotions, shame, and secrecy of battered women, while also offering hope, healing and truth. A delicate blend of frightened humor and pain, the three act play delves right into the heart of abuse. From the hysterical highs of side-splitting comedy Shores is known for, to the heart-rending depths of drama at its most human, the story sweeps the emotional spectrum. Shores draws the audience into the fire, allowing them to laugh one minute and cry the next as they experience the emotions revealed from all sides – the abuser, the abused, and the powerless bystander.
