Cross That River

Educational Production for Grades 4-6

Allan Harris has created an epic song cycle portraying the life and struggles of an African-American cowboy during the slavery and early Reconstruction years. Cross That River represents a significant moment in American History, and tells a story that has never been told. The unsettled West of the 1860’s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a run-away slave, who escapes from slavery to Texas to become one of America’s first Black Cowboys. This compelling tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History. The story of Blue begins in Louisiana, and with every song of this highly-infectious score, the audience is moved further along on Blue’s harrowing journey across the Sabine River to freedom in the Wild West.

Show length 60 minutes. At 6:00pm there will be a full-length Family version of the show including a pre-show presented by the Levi & Catharine Coffin House from here in Wayne County.
