Little House on the Prairie, The Musical

Last night was the opening night performance of Little House on the Prairie, The Musical at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.

So, my girls got their bonnets on and we made our way downtown.
 

Bass Performance Hall is amazingly beautiful, by the way. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend going to see it.

The show was wonderful and we even got a chance to meet some of the cast members, including Melissa Gilbert, who played “Ma”, after the show.

Here are the pioneer girls waiting for the cast members to make their way to the meet and greet.

Look! It’s Laura Ingalls with a tatoo! (Please, don’t be jealous of my mad photography skillz.) Melissa Gilbert was very personable and graciously answered questions, even giving us the scoop on what it was like to work with Michael Landon.

I love Melissa’s darling hair cut and color and her dress was beautiful, although I believe part of it was AWOL.

The other young lady is the actress who played Laura, and the boy is Melissa Gilbert’s son, who played Willie Olsen.

We all had a fantastic time and enjoyed the show immensely!  Tickets are still available if you would like to see the show. Be sure to enter the promotional code FAITH to get the special pricing.

  1. How fun! I’ve loved Little House since I was a girl – but who hasn’t!

    It was FABULOUS! Well worth the drive.

    Thank you so much for letting us know about it. Wish DVDs or CDs of the performance were available :( But I did get a magnet to commermorate the performance.

    I especially loved the comment by Almonzo , something like this cutter does not have any breaks. Wish I could get the words to that song. It was so–spot on.

    At first, I was concerned, being so high and unable to see faces/expressions. I mean, I was just looking down at heads, that it would be a problem. But I just got swept up into the story and somehow didn’t miss it at all! Couple of times wish I’d had/brought opera glasses/binoculars. But then i’d have been focused on one part of the stage and missed the rest.

    I want to reread the books now! See if they were writing the story from the books or the TV show!

    I cried so many times, esp. in the 2nd half. I’d never thought of Little House on the Priaire as being sad before. But I guess, being a momma myself now, has changed my experience of the story.

      @My Boaz’s Ruth, I’m so glad you liked it! My favorite part was the rousing dance from the whole cast at the very end. The audience all stood and clapped along in time. It was wonderful!
