I always keep an eye out for any Laura-related event going on close to home. Not that there’s a lot going on in my part of Michigan far away from any Little House homesite. However, I did hit the jackpot last year with the Laura’s Enduring Tale: Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of “Little House on the Prairie” exhibit that took place at University of Michigan-Dearborn. I went twice. 🙂
A few months ago, a google search lead me to find out about ArtsPower National Touring Theatre’s production of “Laura Ingalls Wilder: Growing Up on the Prairie” that would be stopping at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts on October 22. Happily this is local, being only about a 30 minute drive from my home. It is only 55 minutes long and aimed at grades 2 – 6 (it would make a great field trip). The fact that it is aimed at a (much) younger audience did not deter me from wanting to go see it. I bought two tickets hoping that I could convince either my husband or daughter to go with me. I think I may have been successful in bribing convincing my daughter to enjoy it with me.
I will report back!
