ABOUT THE SHOW
The childhood memories of narrator Jim Burden in Blackhawk, Nebraska are woven together with the struggles of his beloved neighbor, a newly-arrived immigrant girl from Bohemia, Ántonia Shimerda. The story of their friendship outlines the determination, hardship, and resilience of Great Plains life at the turn of the 20th century in this enchanting American classic that is a tribute to the human spirit.
“As we tell this beautiful story, may it inspire all of us to continue to fight for the rights of those now arriving on our shores, have compassion as someone surely did for our ancestors, and unfold the arms of our country to let them in. Let us create a new home together.” - Adapter/Director Annie Lareau
