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 40-minute 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, the 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 are included in both, and the Perf/Accom. CD will help you stage a truly spectacular production. 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 5Pak, Preview Cassette (full performance only) and Performance/Accompaniment CD. Performance Time: 40 minutes. For Grades 3-9.

    I am currently a senior in high school, but I still fondly remember performing this show in fifth grade. It was extremely entertaining, with catchy, memorable, funny lyrics.

  • November 07, 2009 the songs and lyrics are BORING

    it starts out when my music teacher told us what we were doing and a few minutes later we were singing the ballad of lewis and clark. (nice song i admit) but the lyrics were historically incorrect .There WAS no oaf named Charbonneu (or atleast i think thats how his...

    name was spelled .)he was like a french gentelman.Also I feel as if they were INSULTING the French by putting their national anthom in this musical.What no one has noticed is that how can it be called the adventures of lewis and clark , if all they do is talk about the adventures of lewis and clark if their back then why cant they atleast do part of the adventure and make it more exiting or have Cassie travel back in time so that it could actually be happening and meet them there?In my opinion , this is a boring ,pointless and bad musical.
