About the Show:
Heidi is based on the beloved Johanna Spyri novel, which tells the story of a young girl who is taken to live with her grandfather in the scenic Swiss Alps. Heidi's endearing spirit and love for the great outdoors quickly win over her grandfather, as well as the locals, including a goatherd named Peter and his family. Although the book was written in 1880, its message of optimism, altruism, and an appreciation for nature remains as relevant today as it did back then.
Producing Heidi represents a significant symbolic milestone for our theater, as it was the play that we had planned to perform in 2020 before the pandemic struck. The show was in rehearsals when it was ultimately canceled, but we remained committed to bringing back the original cast and crew once the pandemic was over. Despite the challenges of the past 3 years, we are excited to finally make good on that promise and launch our new production.
Rehearsals: November - Februaray
Tech Week January 28
Show Run: February 2 - 11
