Silver Dollar City's "Headin' West" Underway

September 12, 2009 - Branson, Missouri

Silver Dollar City's original musical production, Headin' West returns to The Opera House for a second spectacular season! This elaborate 45-minute stage show created especially for the City tells the story of American westward expansion in the 1860s through spirited characters, brilliant special effects, striking scenery and a rich musical score.

Audiences follow the heroic tale of Luke Stanley as he ventures from the Gateway City to the Golden State in search of a better life for his pioneer family. Along the way he encounters buffalo stampedes, whitewater rapids and other harrowing adventures.
