This is the unbelievable attempt of award-winning reporter Michael Wigge to travel 25,000 miles from Europe to Antarctica -without any money. Throughout his journey, Wigge immerses himself in fascinating subcultures, sleeps on the street with homeless people and nourishes himself with flowers. With the help of over 100 people Wigge manages to aquire free food, free accommodation and free transportation for his 150-day journey across four continents and eleven countries. This unusual travel diary combines adventure with humorous situations and insightful interviews about people’s relationship with money. Presented by: Michael Wigge

    SHY NO LONGER: Almost everyone gets a little anxious or embarrassed in front of other people now and then, though some of us are shyer than others. Sometimes, though, the anxiety can be so intense that it stops us from doing the things we enjoy, or starts interfering in our daily lives. In this group we will explore the benefits of socializing, stepping out of our fear, increased social interaction, and the enriching of our wellbeing.

    From the Mountains of East Tennessee, Southern Gospel Music fills the air and is the home of The Kingdom Heirs, one of Southern Gospel Music’s top Male Quartets. The group started performing in local churches and concert halls and as their music and message spread to a wider audience, so did their popularity and demand. Later in 1982 they began singing at the Silver Dollar City theme park, which is now Dollywood. In 1986 when the theme park took on their new name, The Kingdom Heirs were asked to become the resident gospel group and now this year, both The Kingdom Heirs and Dollywood will be celebrating 33 years. Not only are they one of Dollywood’s favorites, but a favorite to millions everywhere. Preshow dinner starting at 5:30pm.

    SHY NO LONGER: Almost everyone gets a little anxious or embarrassed in front of other people now and then, though some of us are shyer than others. Sometimes, though, the anxiety can be so intense that it stops us from doing the things we enjoy, or starts interfering in our daily lives. In this group we will explore the benefits of socializing, stepping out of our fear, increased social interaction, and the enriching of our wellbeing.
