The Lexington Children's Theatre recently visited BCMS to put on a performance called, "Sacagewea: Discovering History." The synopsis of the play is:
Jane is a 14-year-old who is dragged along on a family road trip following the route of the Corps of Discovery led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Unlike her father and brother, Jane is not excited about the bicentennial of this famous trip. History comes to life for her, though, when the family reaches Ft. Mandan, South Dakota where Sacagawea, a 16 year old Shoshoni Native American, joined the 1804 expedition. During their vacation, Jane learns how Sacagawea’s translation skills, ability to stay calm in danger, and her almost daily provision of roots, berries, and herbs made her a valuable and respected member of the expedition. By the end of the trip, Jane has discovered her own excitement in history.
The Lexington Children's Theatre always does a great job with their performances and BCMS if very appreciative of their work!
