Opry company announces showing of original production


March 23, 2017

The Astor Street Opry Company has announced its original production of “Lewis and Clark, or How the Finns Discovered Astoria,” with performances Fridays and Saturdays, March 31 through April 29. Written by ASOC legend Judith P. Niland, with original music by Philip Morrill of Astoria, this is a vaudeville styled, musical-melodrama.

Witness as the heroes forge their way from Missouri to the Oregon coast, suffering tragedy at the hands of evil foes while battling the wild — all without losing their beer supplies. Watch how they come to the gallant rescue of the Corps of Discovery, reach the end of the Pacific Trail first, and settle the city they christen “Astoria” in honor of their relative, John Jacob Svenson-Astor.

Performance dates are Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., March 31 through April 29. There will be two Sunday matinees, April 9 and 23 at 2 p.m. The house opens 30 minutes before each performance. All Fridays are $5 for any seat.

For tickets call (503)-325-6104, or online at
