Watch & Listen: A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas
A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas, by Laurie Brooks, is a one-act play with music, based on the beloved series of “Little House on the Prairie” books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. The playwright imagines events that occurred when the Ingalls family had to leave Walnut Grove to run a hotel in Iowa. It is a story about hope, perseverance, and family. (Recommended for ages 6+)
