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. Life on the frontier is often difficult for the Ingalls. After arriving in Kansas, the family is forced to move on again when the United States government designates their land as Indian territory. They journey to Minnesota only to be faced with illness when scarlet fever strikes Mary, Laura’s older sister, causing her to lose her sight. Laura becomes Mary’s eyes to the world, and Mary shows her younger sister ow to face life with strength and courage. Laura and the Ingalls family’s pioneering spirit and family bonds are tested but never broken as they travel across the prairie in search of the little house they can call home. This uplifting story of one of America’s most beloved authors comes to life in ArtsPower’s popular musical. Ideal for grades 3-6, each performance lasts approximately 1 hour.

Vignettes include “Corn,” in the style of Rodgers and Hammerstein; “A Little Complex,” Stephen Sondheim; “Dear Abby,” Jerry Herman (composer of “Hello, Dolly!” and “Mame”); “Aspects of Junita,” Andrew Lloyd Webber; and “Speakeasy,” Kander and Ebb (composers of “Cabaret” and “Chicago”).
