Genre: Musical
book and lyrics by Cheryl Coons and music by Chuck Larkin

Based on the real-life disappearance of Glen and Bessie Hyde who vanished on their daredevil river-rafting honeymoon to the Grand Canyon in 1928, RIVER'S END weaves together two completely different versions of their journey, with two pairs of actors playing the Hydes-and two surprising theories of what might have happened to them.

directed by Rick DesRochers with musical direction by Laura Bergquist
