Johnny Appleseed


Steve’s performance is a homespun version of the Early American Frontier from the viewpoint of Johnny (Chapman) Appleseed.

Johnny introduces himself and tells about his life on the Frontier as a real character from 1800 through the 1840’s. He talks about the frontier customs, geography, and disproves some of the legends surrounding the character of Johnny Appleseed.

Johnny’s love for children and animals is very evident as he describes contacts with both. Johnny’s early life is discussed along with his attitudes about life and his relationship with God and others, both Indian and White.

Time for questions is given at the end of every performance to promote audience participation.
