On their way to new lives in California, sixteen travelers choose the wrong turn. Their choice delays their dreams and strands them in the icy mountains for months without food, where death will only be escaped by the most forbidden act. Meet Your Mountain tells the real-life story of the Donner Party; a story filled with ambition, murder, and loss, but nevertheless brimming with life-affirming inspiration and hope for us all.
Eric Rockwell (Music)
A Drama Desk nominee for Best Music, Eric composed the score and co-wrote the book to The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) which, after two years of performances in New York, went on to have success on London’s West End. Mr. Rockwell has composed the scores to several musicals for children, including Golly Gee Whiz, a loving satire of the Judy Garland-Mickey Rooney movie musicals of the thirties, and Up To You, a musical that shines a spotlight on bullying; both of these were honored with a National Youth Theatre award for outstanding original musical. ericrockwell.com
