Laura Ingalls Wilder's inspirational stories take on a brand new frontier in this new musical, adapted by Adrianne Lobel and Francesca Zambello, with music by Academy Award winner Rachel Portman, lyrics by Donna di Novelli and a book by Tony winner Rachel Sheinkin. 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' 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.
