The performance of "Little House on the Prairie: The Musical" by the Black Hills State University Theatre and Music Department will start on Friday, Feb. 23.

The musical, inspired by the beloved book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, is scheduled to premiere on Friday, Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m. There will be an extra evening show on Feb. 24 at the same time. The run ends with a Sunday matinee on Feb. 25 at 2 p.m. The event is scheduled to occur in the Woodburn Auditorium, serving as its last performance on that stage before renovations begin.

Casey S. Hibbert, instructor of theatre at BHSU, expressed enthusiasm for collaborating with the Music Department to present this timeless story of family, determination, love, and adventure.

 "Everyone is familiar with the story of Laura Ingalls and her adventures out west, but this is a completely new tale. The songs are quite impressive, the show is brimming with sentimentality and humour, all while remaining faithful to Laura's origins. 

Would you like to join the waggon train heading west?"Little House on the Prairie: The Musical" depicts the Ingalls’ journey westward and their settlement in De Smet, where Ma and Pa Ingalls aspire to create a better life for their children. The story revolves around their efforts to maintain their land claim. 

Witness the Ingalls family navigate through the challenges of winter blizzards and prairie fires, while also celebrating the establishment of land and town through storytelling, music, and dance.

The primary actors in this production are Gwen Hoops, Scott Kennedy, Rylann Olson, Elliot Quinonez, and Logan Culhane from BHSU. The remaining cast includes a mix of skilled BHSU students, alumni, and local community members.
