Well done, if a bit simplistic.

4 out of 5

This was my first time seeing a production of A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The acting is well done all around, and the costumes were absolutely superb. (Kelly Sears as Mrs. Starr was particularly delightful with an over-the-top performance that contrasted well with the very dignified and proper Ingalls.)

With that said, there were two things I felt could have improved the production. In most instances the actors pantomime the objects in their hands, versus holding actual props, and there are two boxes used for the entire show that, at times, make a distracting sound when pushed across the stage. Overall, however, these proved to be minor hindrances to an otherwise excellent production.

Special kudos go out to the young Abby Miller (Laura Ingalls) who shines in her first lead role and London Smith (Carrie Ingalls), who made my heart melt with every line. (And the tenor in the back of the choir who added the comedic flair to '12 Days'. Marvelous!)
