The Life and Adventures of Sam Pringle dinner theater is scheduled Jan. 19 at Hawks Nest State Park near Ansted.

The setting for the story starts in 1761, at the tail end of the French and Indian War, when John and Samuel Pringle deserted from the English army at Fort Pitt. The two brothers made their way to a remote region of western Virginia along what is now the Buckhannon River where they lived in a hollow sycamore tree for three years. This is an exciting story of the first two pioneers of the region and their struggle with the wilderness and the terrors it contained. Come and hear the hair-raising tale of Samuel Pringle's hand to paw fight with a huge black bear, told in the first person by Gene Thorn, a living history storyteller from French Creek.
