“A wonderful mixture of music, historical research, and personal reflection…” – St. Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch
SS Edmund Fitzgerald was an American Great Lakes freighter that sank in a Lake Superior storm on November 10, 1975, with the loss of the entire crew of 29. The tragedy is told in story and song through the characters involved—the captain, the crew, the widows, the owners.

DIRECTOR: Elizabeth Dewey
Elizabeth Dewey started acting, directing, and making costumes in high school and has since worked with several community and college theaters. The first show she directed for Players was “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”, and the most recent was “It’s a Wonderful Life Radio Show”; her favorite was Mitch Albom’s “Duck Hunter Shoots Angel”. In 2019, costuming “Cabaret” with Doris Perry was a demanding and enlightening experience. Husband Thomas Dewey and daughter Robin McClain also have experience at Players—often in one of Liz’s shows! Liz is retired from Delta College.
