The Real Lewis and Clark Story is back!

IT HAS RETURNED! Yes, it is time again for ASOC’s 9th REAL LEWIS AND CLARK STORY (or How the FINNS Discovered ASTORIA) March 27 – April 19th, 2020, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 pm, 2 pm Sunday matinees, April 5th and 19th, 2020 at the ASOC Playhouse, 129 W. Bond Street in Uniontown, Astoria.

The REAL LEWIS AND CLARK STORY is brought to you by Corps of Discovery Construction, LLC, veteran-owned and licensed contractor in Oregon and Washington.

ASOC is very proud of this original historical, hysterical, musical melodramas 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). Written by Judith P. Niland, with original music by Drs. Stanley Azen and Joyce C. Niland and Professor Philip Morrill, the 2019 edition of The Real Lewis and Clark Story is co-directed by the author, Judith P. Niland, and ASOC veteran Jayne Osborn.

Meet Captain Bobby Gray, Miss Jaynie Barnes, the Svenson Sisters, the Brave Indian Guide Sacagawea, the crew of the Corps of Discovery and a whole cast of colorful characters as we witness our courageous heroes forge their way with dedication and commitment from Saint Charles Missouri to the Oregon Pacific Coast. Walk in their footsteps as they battle the wilds of nature, evil villains and suffering great tragedy without ever losing their beer supplies! Then, watch with awe as they come to the gallant rescue of Captains Meriwether Lewis & William Clark and the Corps of Discovery reaching the end of the Pacific trail first to settle the little city on the mouth of the Columbia River they named “ASTORIA” in honor of their relative, John Jacob Svenson-Astor.
