Written and produced by world-renowned Merrill Osmond, the production is based on Merrill’s strong belief that today’s youth are the hope and future of tomorrow, features 150+ youth that will dance, sing, and re-enact the stories of the pioneer trek West and their attempt to settle the untamed valley. The Production will delight you with wagons, handcarts, live animals, the rocket man, music, special guests, and one of the largest fireworks displays in the valley. The Production recounts the journey of the pioneers and conveys tales of all of Utah's other settlers, such as Catholic missionary colonizers; Greek and Italian pioneers; the Chinese, Jewish and Mormon settlers; as well as the Native Americans.
The Youth Pioneer Production will bring families and friends close together as we embark on a journey that will remind us of the legacy our ancestors left behind. The Youth Pioneer Production celebrates this pioneer legacy and ensures that history is not forgotten.
