Columbus! The Discoverer– A Musical Adventure for TYA

ColumbusLOGOConceived and Written by JOE COSENTINO

Music and Lyrics by SUSAN MONDZAK

(Performable by Professional, Amateur  & Church Groups, and Educational groups. )

COLUMBUS! The Discoverer  follows Columbus’ dreams of becoming a famous explorer and his attempts to sail a direct route to the Far East. We witness his struggle for support, eventual backing from Queen Isabella of Spain, the survival of his ship’s mutiny, landing in the new world, and his effect on the Native Americans. Columbus may not have discovered America — even by accident — but he was the explorer who found it and thus enabled European expansion. This show was first produced by Interborough Repertory Theater and toured through Encore Performing Arts, Inc. of New York.
