Exploration

Spirit of America inspired audiences to “rekindle their stardust” with the story of Annie, a young photographer from New York City, who had lost sight of her true calling in life. The audience traveled with Annie on a fantastical journey through time and space, where she met famous explorers and historical figures, who helped her regain her integrity and purpose.
