(Grades 3-9, 45 Minutes) In 1804, the United States, under the leadership of President Thomas Jefferson, commissioned Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to travel, explore and chart the new territories of the Louisiana Purchase. These brave men, and their companions, York, Charbonneau, Sacajawea, along with their trusty dog, Scannon, traveled up the Missouri River, over the Rocky Mountains, and down the Columbia River, all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Their remarkable story comes to life in this clever musical adaptation by Roger Emerson and John Jacobson, with 8 original songs and a delightfully-entertaining script.
The Teacher's Manual includes the accompanied songs, full script, and background historical information, while the Singer's Edition includes the script and vocal lines only. Best of all, John Jacobson's choreography notes areincluded in both. Let music enrich the curriculum of your school as you join Lewis and Clark in their historic journey.
Available: Teacher's Manual, Singer's Edition 5-Pak, Preview Cassette (full performance only) and Performance/Accompaniment CD.
