Based on the Newberry Award winning novel, this frontier adventure is set in Southwestern Washington at the turn of the 1800’s. This is the story of May Amelia Jackson, the only girl ever born in the new settlement along the Naselle River. She battles between being a ‘proper young lady’ and her inner spirit. The arrival of her baby sister sends her on a journey of self-discovery. This is a story of strength, identity, and self-reliance, and a battle against the expectations of tradition.

2014-15 Season Auditions for Adults were held in July.
