The Plot: It’s Christmas time! But for the Ingalls family, life looks bleak. When Laura is asked to act as a companion to Mrs. Starr, she’s excited to be in the midst of finery. However, when she overhears Mrs. Starr offer to adopt her, Laura begins to worry that Ma and Pa will actually give her up. Would that be best for the family? Telling the story of one Christmas from the “missing” years, not chronicled in the books. This poignant and moving story of hope, healing, and family is swept along through dialogue, humor, and period songs. Join the Ingalls family in celebrating Christmas at the Yorkshire Playhouse!

Come audition to be a part of this years Christmas Show!
