Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale, a two-act musical enhanced with an original score of 10 songs designed to entertain and educate audiences of all ages about Abraham Lincoln’s journey from an Indiana pioneer to President of the United States. It is 1816, and Thomas, Nancy, Sarah and a young Abraham Lincoln move to the Southern Indiana wilderness looking for new opportunities. Amidst the hope of a new life, Abe’s mother Nancy sings a powerful song about moving on to Indiana and never looking back.
