Little House on the Prairie: The Musical
Another way to tell the story about the importance of home
Little House on the Prairie: The Musical is a musical based on the beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder series of classic American books. Little House is the uplifting story of an American family forging a new life amidst the challenges, heartbreaks, joys and triumphs that face them in the newly-settled heartland. Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura in the NBC television series during the 1970s, continues her legacy on the prairie by playing the role of Ma Ingalls.
The musical began its 34-week, 25-city tour in October 2009 and made a minimum donation of $1,500 per market to Habitat for Humanity during its run.
Additionally, the cast and crew helped local Habitat for Humanity affiliates build or repair homes at each tour stop along the way.
The tour ended in June 2010.
