Lewis & Clark shares the story of the duo’s journey, along with their companions, up to the Missouri River, over the Rocky Mountains and to the Pacific Ocean.  The performances, sets and costumes were made possible by support from the Simpson Elementary PTA. The Simpson Singers also performed the National Anthem at the Braves game on Friday, May 6.
