Sigurd Jonny “Sig” Hansen, the American captain of the fishing vessel Northwestern and the star of the hit reality show “The Deadliest Catch, will be at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, Sept. 13, at 7:30 p.m. along with some seafaring friends to share their fishing adventures.

Mr. Hansen has not suffered any major accidents on his ship, but he has come very close, braving horrendous weather and waves that have almost sunk the boat.

Mr. Hansen will also appear on Hersam Acorn Radio’s Yankee Fisherman program at 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11. Listeners can tune in live on Trumbulltimes.com or HANRadio.com or listen to the show archive on HANRadio.com.
