Laura Ingalls Wilder: Growing Up on the Prairie
Friday, April 25, 10 a.m. & 12:30 p.m.
In one of America’s favorite classic stories, Laura Ingalls and her pioneering family travel across America in search of a place they can call home. A true tomboy at heart, Laura shares her Pa’s pioneering spirit and passion for the outdoors. Her Pa encourages her to keep a diary of their travels, but Laura is too busy playing on the prairie, fishing, and chasing gophers.
Facing obstacles such as scarlet fever and eviction from their land, the Ingalls’ pioneering spirit and family bonds are tested but never broken. This uplifting story of one of America’s most beloved authors comes to life in ArtsPower’s popular musical.
