“Vanport, the Musical” at the Midland Library (event):

vanport the musical

“They came from all over the country: men, women, children, families. They came mostly by train during WWII to serve their country, not only to survive but to obtain the American Dream. After the war many left returning to their hometown of Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma and beyond but some stayed making the city their home until the flood of 1948 washed it away. In this musical for the whole family, members will smell the opportunity, touch the dream, hear the music, taste the victory and see the canvas of Vanport.”
