Little House on the Prairie, a new musical based on the beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder series of classic American books, comes to Oklahoma City’s Civic Center Music Hall for only eight limited performances November 17-22, 2009.
Melissa Gilbert, who rose to fame as a child playing ‘Laura’ in the hugely successful NBC television series “Little House on the Prairie” during the 1970’s, now continues her legacy ‘on the prairie’ by taking on the role of Ma. Little House on the Prairie also stars Steve Blanchard as Pa and Kara Lindsay as Laura.
Little House on the Prairie, with Gilbert, Blanchard and Lindsay, had its world premiere production in August, 2008 at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, where it shattered all box-office records and sold-out for 12 consecutive weeks. Initiated for the stage by Adrianne Lobel (Frog and Toad) and Francesca Zambello, the show is directed by Zambello (Disney’s The Little Mermaid), with music by Academy Award® winner Rachel Portman (Emma), lyrics by Donna di Novelli and a book by Tony Award® winner Rachel Sheinkin (The 25TH Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee). Michele Lynch is choreographer and Kevin Stites is musical supervisor.
Little House on the Prairie is the uplifting story of an American family forging a new life amidst the mighty challenges, heartbreaks, joys and triumphs that face them in the newly-settled heartland. It is also the story of young Laura Ingalls, as she begins her life as a young woman, finding purpose, and finding love. Above all, it is the celebration of the pioneering spirit and the core values on which this country was founded – a spirit that still resonates today.
Little House on the Prairie The Musical is presented by Celebrity Attractions and kicks off the 2009-2010 Broadway Season including Legally Blonde The Musical, The Wizard of Oz, Cirque Dreams Illumination and Rain a Tribute to The Beatles and the add-on productions of The Christmas Music of Mannheim Steamroller and Tuna Does Vegas.
