Oregon Trail w/ Themselves | Brookfield

Friday, February 22, 2019
9:00 am10:00 am

Drawing from events in historical journals and records, Themselves presents the story of three people and their experiences traveling by wagon train from Independence, Missouri to the lush farmlands of Oregon. We explore the reasons people made this journey, what it was like, the dangers and fun along the way, the role of Native Americans and the change in transportation throughout this fascinating time in America history. Period songs, costumes, props, journal entries and scenes all contribute to a tale of a remarkable journey in which a vast and awesome wilderness is crossed and a new understanding of courage, perseverance and interdependence is gained.
