ASOC is very proud of this original, historical, hysterical, musical melodrama featuring the lost story of how Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and their Corps of Discovery really came to end of the trail. And how they were rescued by the true heroes of the Pacific Northwest, two boys from the Old Country, Minnesota, who showed up in time to save the day! (with the help of their Mama of course)

There are many parts available including: Meriwether Lewis and William Clark the fearless leaders, Ole and Sven the Brew Masters, Mama Svenson and her girls (the REAL heroes), Jaynie Barnes, Capt. Bobby Gray, Barkeeps and wenches, a Master of Ceremonies, and the whole assortment of the crew who makes up “The Corps of Discovery”.

No experience is necessary and there are parts for over 26 men and women (ages 18 and older) who can carry a tune, do a little side step and be willing to go down in ASOC history we relive the tale of how Astoria was discovered!

Parts may be open to younger performers 16-17, based on experience. Please contact Judith at (503) 791-1037 for more information. You can fill out your audition form by clicking here.
