Second Saturday
"The Edmund Fitzgerald Investigations"
with Ric Mixter
1:00pm
 

When launched on June 7, 1958, the SS Edmund Fitzgerald was the largest ship on North America's Great Lakes, and she remains the largest to have sunk there. The ship was traveling on Lake Superior with a cargo of ore pellets from Superior, Wisconsin in route to Detroit, when she was caught in a severe storm. Hurricane-force winds caused the ship to sink on November 10, 1975 with the loss of the entire crew of 29.

Join Ric Mixter as he presents rare construction footage of the Fitzgerald, and interviews from every major expedition to the site of the shipwreck.

He headlines clubs and colleges all over the country, has appeared in national television commercials and on such shows as Comedy Central's “Distraction,” Fox News and SiTV's “Latino Laugh Festival.” He also earned a role on the CBS network summer hit series, “Fire me Please.” Rob’s recently released 3rd comedy DVD/CD, is another testament to his talent and status as a comedic force. For more information visit the State Theatre website
