There's gold in them thar hills! Gold has been discovered in the hills of California. Land is being given away to settlers willing to make a fresh start in the newly explored regions of the American West. Cowpokes and miners, farmers and trappers, gamblers and adventurers of all kinds are making their way west to chase the promise of the American Dream. They come by way of wagon train, horseback, stream boat and rail. Go West combines music, history and drama to explore important facts about the westward expansion of early United States and discovers that real gold is not always the kind made into ingots and baubles. Real gold is discovered in the ideas and inspiration derived from new lands, fresh starts and attainable dreams abundant in the promises of the land of the free. Perfect for upper elementary and middle school performers, this historic and entertaining 40-minute musical features 7 original songs, connecting script, John Jacobson's choreography and a helpful production guide. The Teacher Edition includes full script, accompanied songs, Production Guide and choreography suggestions.

Available: Teacher Edition, Singer Edition 5-Pak, Preview CD (with vocals only), Performance/Accompaniment CD, Performance Kit/CD (Teacher's Edition, 10 Singer books, Performance/Accompaniment CD). Performance Time: Approx. 40 minutes. For Grades 4-8.
