2018 Culminating Performance


Minds in Motion travels back in time to the establishment of the first permanent English settlement in the New World. In partnership with the Jamestown Rediscovery Center, and loosely inspired by the novel Blood on the River, students retell the story of Jamestown’s founding through the eyes of Samuel Collier, a boy who sailed with the original colonists. Enriched by discoveries still being made at the Jamestown excavation, this remarkable tale of struggle shows how history is alive and can still move us today.

Performances are free and open to the public.
