Astoria Part 2… Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Adapted and Directed by Chris Coleman; based on the book ASTORIA: John Jacob Astor and Thomas Jefferson’s Lost Pacific Empire, A Story of Wealth, Ambition, and Survival by Peter Stark. A World Premiere! At a time when the edge of American settlement barely reached beyond the Appalachian Mountains, two visionaries, President Thomas Jefferson and millionaire John Jacob Astor, foresaw that one day the Pacific would dominate world trade as much as the Atlantic did in their day. Just two years after the Lewis and Clark expedition concluded in 1806, Jefferson and Astor turned their sights westward once again. Thus began one of history’s dramatic but largely forgotten turning points in the conquest of the North American continent. Leading to the establishment of Astoria, the first permanent United States settlement on the West Coast. Includes: Transportation to/from Salem, Woodburn & Tualatin; Performance; Lunch; & Gratuities.
