SACRAMENTO-Trailblazer Student Productions is bringing a special performance to Sacramento’s DDSO Parkway Theatre this weekend with The Trail to Oregon,the musical.
Follow a family of pioneers preparing for their journey to Oregon! Led by the father, they face comedic challenges and misadventures along the way, including encounters with outlaws and unscrupulous merchants. The family bonds, bickers, and makes difficult decisions on their arduous trek. Daughter’s interaction with the Bandit King, the revelation of Grandpa’s lobster-war past, and a near-fatal snakebite contribute to the unfolding drama. As the journey continues, Daughter gets abducted, causing the family to frantically pursue her. With determination and help from unexpected sources, Father goes to great lengths to rescue her and reunite the family.
Trailblazer Student Productions is comprised of a handful of students who are hard-working theatre lovers with the crazy determination to create a theatre production company from scratch. The idea of putting on an entirely student produced show started when a group of us watched the original production of The Trail to Oregon! on YouTube.
The students thought it would be a blast to get to do this show, but so many people had never heard of it… so why not do it themselves? Along the way they recruited a small but mighty group who have been working nonstop for the last 4 weeks to make this show happen.
The DDSO Parkway Theater is located at 5015 47th Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95824.
The show runs August 4-6 at the following times: Friday at 7:30pm, Saturday at 3:30pm & 7:30pm, Sunday at 3:30pm.
Reservations can be made online at: trailblazer.thundertix.com or email TrailblazerStudentProductions@gmail.com for reservations via email AND phone.
