'Survivorman' Les Stroud to Appear at the Gallo Center for the Arts February 27

Survival expert and television star takes to the stage with a program of film, music and storytelling

Modesto, Calif. (PRWEB) February 02, 2013

Canadian filmmaker Les Stroud, best known as the star of the hit TV series “Survivorman” and “Beyond Survival,” is adding stage performer to his repertoire. The survival expert will appear at the Gallo Center for the Arts on Wednesday, February 27, at 7 pm.

Tickets range in price from $10 to $45, and can be purchased online at GalloArts.org, calling (209) 338-2100, or at the Gallo Center ticket office, 1000 I Street in downtown Modesto.

“Survivorman: Film, Music and Story" is a presentation of film, questions and answers with the audience, storytelling and live music designed to show how Stround managed to combine his life’s passions into an extraordinary career.

On his television shows, which aired in Canada on the Outdoor Life Network, and internationally on Discovery Channel and Science Channel, Stroud used his wits, stamina and knowledge to survive for up to seven days while videotaping his adventures in remote locales where he brought with him little or no food, water, or equipment. According to the show's website, each location was scouted and pre-planned extensively by Stroud and his team who consulted with survival specialists and natives of each area.

Stroud is the only producer in the history of television to produce an internationally broadcast series entirely written, videotaped and hosted alone, and he is credited with starting a new genre of television known as ‘Survival TV’.
