The idea for this community play was conceived and developed by long time resident and locally celebrated author Sally Lesh. In collaboration with Gustavus Historical Archives and Antiquities (www.gustavushistory.org), and with the support of local and outside talent, the play will be performed Saturday night, Aug. 30, 6:30-9pm at the Gustavus gymnasium. Admission is free.
Gustavus wishes to extend a special invitation to Juneau and surrounding communities, many of which had an important role to play in the lives of the early pioneers.
Come get acquainted with our colorful homesteaders-alive in spirit and with plenty to say about life in early Alaska. Get up close and personal with crusty old prospectors, brave lonely wives, grudge holding neighbors, and proud determined farmers breaking new ground. Join the community of Gustavus in a rollicking good time of old fashioned fun, music, and wild stories you won't believe-and won't soon forget!
