This poignant story set in 1920 on Park Rapids farmland will be performed outdoors on the Visitation Convent grounds. The musical version was beautifully created by the local creative team of Perrin Post (book), Laurie Flannigan Hegge (book and lyrics), and Dina Maccabee (music) and Inspired by the film Sweet Land by Ali Selim (STA ’79) and the short story A GRAVESTONE MADE OF WHEAT by Will Weaver. There will be limited seating for the three outdoor performances and also opportunities to purchase access to the streamed production.
VISTA's spring musical received many impressive honors from the Spotlight Music Theatre program which recognizes excellence in high school theatre programs.
