OPENING FRIDAY JUNE 1ST
In 1804, President Thomas Jefferson enlisted Meriwether Lewis and William Clark’s Corps of Discovery to explore the uncharted West and find an all-water route across North America to unite sea with shining sea.
This is the narrative we were taught.
Sign on for “JOURNEY WEST! The Legend of Lewis & Clark” and join an epic quest that re-blazes the historic trail to the Pacific through song, dance, and Sasquatch in this whimsical and irreverent send-up of one of America’s most beloved origin stories.
Embark on this outrageous musical excursion and explore how we as a country choose to tell the stories of our past. If history is written by the victors, then what does it look like through the lens of the disenfranchised? Who gets to tell their story vs. who gets their story told for them? …and who becomes a footnote? With “JOURNEY WEST! The Legend of Lewis and Clark” we aim to change this narrative as our diverse, genderqueer cast and crew bring this adventure to the stage.
Copious Love Productions is overjoyed to premiere our thirteenth full-length production as we, along with the writer Andrew Lee Creech, invite you into truly un-trodden territory with this world-premiere musical. Andrew is a writer, performer, and musician proudly hailing from the Pacific Northwest. He is dedicated to telling fun, unique, and important stories, while fostering the growth, success, and visibility of young POC artists.

PARKING Let’s face it, we’re in the International District and parking can suck. Be sure to allow extra time to find a spot! We highly recommend carpooling, busing or taking the LIGHT RAIL!
REMINDER! Street parking is monitored until 8pm. However, there are several lots to choose from if you can’t find something for cheap! Make sure not to leave any valuables in your car and also consider an alternative form of travel since game days can be tricky.
AGAIN, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING THE LIGHT RAIL! It drops you off right by our venue! OR download The Parkopedia app for your smartphone.
SODO/INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT is one of Seattle’s best neighborhoods. This community hosts some of the best restaurants, bars, and spots. Vibrant and continuously bustling, this is a great spot to make your theatre date complete!
COPIOUS LOVE RECOMMENDS:
The Food Court at Uwajimaya– there is nowhere better! So many choices! SO MUCH VARIETY! Plus, its right across the street from the venue!
Samurai Noodle– Incredible Ramen that will keep you full for the whole show! Quick and scrumptious!
