Music by Kenneth Perry
(For production by LDS Wards, Stakes and Community groups.)
The place is Utah after the Civil War. The Church is expanding and Brigham Young is calling individuals and families to colonize out-lying areas in Nevada, Southern Utah, Arizona, California, Colorado, Wyoming and Idaho. The fictional Brown family is called to serve such a mission and their reaction to what they come to understand as their duty makes up the story of this musical. This slice of life in post-Civil War Utah, mixed with young love in full bloom, is both funny and touching.
