Great for families! From the foot stompin’ hoedown to the last amen, Pioneer Legacy inspires and entertains, so, bring the kids and be prepared to laugh, cry, and feel the spirit of the Pioneers,” suggests Lynne Thompson, Pioneer Legacy author and creator.
The emotion and drama of the Mormon trek comes to life as the story of pioneers, George and Elizabeth Fox, unfolds. Distraught over the loss of her tiny baby, Elizabeth hears his cries in her mind and becomes lost as she goes to comfort him. After 50 men spend two days searching and her footprints are discovered near the Green River she is presumed drowned. Her husband reluctantly, takes their three children on to Salt Lake, writing messages on the rocks along the way for people to look for her.
“Elizabeth’s story brings a tear to your eye and a smile to your face as the pioneer spirit moves front and center,” says Thompson. “The faith promoting love story is told through music, dance and drama with the professional Legacy Dance Theater Company performing along with children from the Green River area giving the show a touch of home,”
“I can feel this story in my bones,” says Shannon Otte, the show director and author of the narration that reflects George’s dilemma: should he continue searching for his wife on the plains of Wyoming or take their three children on to Salt Lake.
The original score, written by David Thompson, features vocalist Katie Thompson (Forgotten Carols, Safe Harbors, So You Think You Can Dance, Giant, Wash D.C.)

Script and Lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by Michael Silversher
Directed by Rosemary Newcott
It sounds so simple, just a quick trip to the Laundromat with Daddy, Trixie, and her beloved Knuffle Bunny. But, before you know it things go horribly, hilariously wrong. Chock full of adventure, song, and gigantic dancing laundry, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical tells a tale of firsts: a stuffed animal’s first trip in the laundry, a little girl’s first words, and a Daddy’s first time dealing with his child going “boneless.” Based on his beloved Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, six-time Emmy Award winner Mo Willems joins Grammy Award®–winning composer Michael Silversher to lovingly celebrate the heart and heartache that can only come from a family visit to the local Laundromat. We mentioned the giant dancing laundry, right?
