NSTC Youth Musical  RustyRoyal1.JPG

 Directed by Pierre Jacques Pleau


While traveling down the wagon trail the pioneers encounter many obstacles: ruts, rocks, rain storms and muddy hills, but they persevere through it all and make it to their destination – a campsite where they’ll spend their final night together before heading their separate ways to homestead the land. Unbeknown by the pioneers, as their wagon train rolls into camp it draws the attention and curiosity of those already living in the vicinity. Shortly the Raccoons, Rusty & Royal sneak around and put on pioneer disguises with the intention of inviting themselves to the pioneer’s picnic. The Hermits, Hadley and Harlow on the other hand would just as soon see the pioneers leave!  Sensing that intervention might be needed to resolve brewing conflicts, the Fairies hold a special meeting to figure out how to help keep peace in the land. Meanwhile at the picnic, still unaware of what is just beyond their view in the forest, the pioneer youth share stories about their homelands, their journey and their dreams for their future…
