An American story sings as this new musical, based on the classic tales penned by Laura Ingalls Wilder, comes to life at the Guthrie under the direction of Francesca Zambello. A fabulous cast, including Broadway veterans Steven Blanchard (Charles 'Pa' Ingalls) and Jenn Gambatese (Mary Ingalls), television star Melissa Gilbert (Caroline 'Ma' Ingalls), newcomer Kara Lindsay (Laura Ingalls) and Guthrie favorite Maeve Moynihan (Carrie Ingalls), join an award-winning creative team, including Tony Award-winning writer Rachel Sheinkin (book), Academy Award-winning film composer Rachel Portman (music) and Donna di Novelli (lyrics), for this world premiere production at the Guthrie.

Though their DeSmet, South Dakota farmstead comes with many new challenges, the Ingalls family perseveres through the hardships of pioneer life to find hope, love and the promise of a new beginning in a land of endless sky and open prairie. As Laura struggles to overcome a lifelong loathing of school and frequent battles with a town rival, her older sister's sudden blindness and a harsh winter blizzard tests the independent spirit of this young pioneer. Forced to grow up quickly, she follows an unexpected calling, becoming a teacher and finding love on the prairie.

Little House on the Prairie begins previews July 26, with opening night set for August 15 and performances continuing through October 19 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage.
