This new adaptation portrays how Anne, a young Jewish girl who is forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, together with her father, mother, and sister, is joined by the Van Daan family. Anne’s dynamisms, her luminous spirit, and her story of resilience continue to resonate deeply, making her story as vital today as when her diary was first written.

Through the magic of live theatre, the musical follows the Ingalls family's journey westward and settlement in DeSmet, South Dakota where Ma and Pa Ingalls hoped to make a better life for their children. It tells the story of their struggle to keep their land claim. In story, song and dance, we see the Ingalls suffering the hardships of winter blizzards and prairie fires as well as rejoicing in the settlement of land and town. Most of all, the story follows Laura as she grows from the wild child who loved to run free into a woman who embraces the responsibilities of her own future while struggling to remain true to herself.
