The Ivey Award-winning History Theatre brings their hit production of “Sweet Land, the musical” to Newhall Auditorium. The musical was developed from the film “Sweet Land” by Ali Selim and the short story by
Minnesota author Will Weaver. Faribault native Ann Michels stars in the role of Inge Altenberg as she journeys to America to marry a bachelor farmer, sight unseen. In the wake of World War I, Inge’s German heritage turns her new neighbors against the match. Under cathedral skies, the determined young immigrant and her stoic farmer fight for their lives, facing their own misgivings and the harshness of an unforgiving land.
A lyrical celebration of hard-won independence and a reflection of generations past, “Sweet Land, the musical” reminds us of who we are - and where we came from. Don’t miss this poignant, lyrical celebration of land, love, and the American immigrant experience.
