(Grades 3-9, 45 Minutes) In 1804, President Thomas Jefferson commissioned Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to travel, explore and chart the territories of the new 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 with 8 original songs and entertaining script.
