Author: Anthony James – Music: Tim Spencer


The Discovery of America


Leif the Lucky, one of the unluckiest Vikings in his village, decides to prove himself a successful explorer by finding the mythical new land spotted by the merchant, Bjarni, 15 years before. With the help of the Norse Gods, Odin and Thor, Leif finally makes it to the new land, which he calls Vinland.

However, Loki God of Mischief persuades the local people to fight off this new Viking invasion, leading to a fascinating and fun musical.
