CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Release) - Join the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center this Saturday for two performances of the musical “Pioneer Song” by The Great Bear Folk Theatre. The group will perform at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on August 28.

Pioneer Song is a creative and engaging musical written by J. Omar Hansen. Based on the real journal entries of women who crossed the Oregon Trail, Pioneer Song is a fictional account of Ruth Maramin and her three daughters joining a wagon train in 1849. Pioneer Song gives voice to many of the 30,000 people who traveled the trails that year, sharing their stories of joy, heartache, and sorrow.

“Theatre has a way of reminding us that history isn’t just dates and names. Rather, it’s the tragedies and triumphs of real people who traveled through this area filled with hope for their futures ahead,” says Park Ranger Kylie McCormick.

For more information, please call 307-261-7700.
