The Birth of the CPR

A rip-roaring boogie-woogie, bluegrass musical that tells the story of the building of Canada’s great railway. Join Sir John A. MacDonald, William Van Horne, Andrew Onderdonck, and A.B. Rogers as they dare the impossible. Surveyors will brave the elements, navvies will blast mountains, and workers lay miles of track as they dream of a rail journey across a new country.
