OTISVILLE STUDENTS TAKE EPIC VOYAGE ON STAGE


“I’m Lewis!” “I’m Clark!” And with the help of Sacagawea, their Native American guide, Otisville’s students were off to explore the western territory.

Thanks to Otisville’s PTO, the TheatreWorks Company came to the school’s stage and engaged grades 3-5 in a 45-minute interactive production of the epic voyage.  

Taking on the roles of Lewis and Clark, Sacagawea, the Corps of Discovery, and many others, students explored the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase, experienced hairbreath escapes and chance reunions, warded off ferocious animals, and imagined the majestic scenery that surrounded this two-and-a-half year-long adventure.

Embroiled as they were in their role-playing, they hardly noticed the lessons they learned about history, science, character development and teamwork.
