The Laguna Playhouse debuted “Looking for Home,” a story about the Orphan Trains, this past weekend, and your last chance to see the play is this coming weekend, November 10-13. JSerra student Bridget Kavanaugh is on the crew for the play.
Looking For Home is a new musical that examines the historical railroad transporting of orphaned children from the streets of New York City to the Great Plains. These “orphan trains” ran from 1856 to 1930 and it’s estimated that over 200,000 children were relocated or “placed out” by the Children’s Aid Society or similar organizations.
This World Premiere beautifully follows the true story of 11 year old Anna Hoffman and her siblings who were successfully “placed” in a small town in Kansas in 1923. This is a heartwarming story about courage and the healing powers that make a family…home. Suitable for ages 5 and up.
