MAYDAY: A World Premiere


You’re invited to the premiere of a new play written by Bill DeYoung, author of the non-fiction book Skyway: The True Story of Tampa Bay’s Signature Bridge and the Man Who Brought it Down.

MAYDAY is a true story about more guilt than any one man should bear. It’s also the story of a family shattered, a career in tatters and a desperate search for absolution.

Meet John Lerro, the ship’s pilot whose life turned upside down when the hulking freighter he was steering through Tampa Bay struck the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, sending 35 motorists plunging to their deaths 150 feet below.

Michael Horn portrays John Lerro in MAYDAY: CAPTAIN LERRO AND THE SKYWAY BRIDGE, directed by Roxanne Fay.

Performances will be held Friday June 25, 2021 at 8 PM, Saturday June 26, 2021 at 2PM and 8PM. Advanced tickets are required, no at the door ticket sales. At this time masks are requested while inside the building. Audience size is limited to ensure adequate social distance between parties.
