In her beloved Little House books, Laura Ingalls Wilder describes some of the Christmases she and her family celebrate on the frontier. Christmas celebrations during those times were a much simpler affair, focused more on the non-materialistic side of Christmas. “A Little House Christmas” at the Des Moines Playhouse is a perfect way for families to kick off the holiday season in Des Moines.
Ma (Jenna Darsee), Pa (Oliver Thrun), Mary (Josie Talley), and Laura (Isabelle Baker) Ingalls gather the whole family together at their home to celebrate the holidays. When a natural disaster strikes, it seems like Santa won’t be able to make it! But Christmas is a time for miracles, and Laura and Mary are determined to help ensure Ma and Pa don’t have a gift-less holiday.
Attending a show at the Kate Goldman Children’s Theatre at the Des Moines Playhouse is a great way to introduce kids to a live theater performance. Shows are specifically geared to young children and their families and offer a wonderful introduction to the performing arts. Don’t forget to meet the cast and get their autographs after the show. It’s a nice touch that makes a trip to a performance at the Kate Goldman Children’s Theatre really memorable for kids.
Directed by Melissa M. Kellar, the cast includes Shawn Baker, Will Bower, Caroline Holmes, Michael Howland, Elysa Koss, and Sean Nelsen. This show is recommended for ages 5 and up and runs about 50 minutes with no intermission.
