The Ivey Award-winning History Theatre brings its hit production of Sweet Land, the musical to Memorial Auditorium in Dawson on June 17, 2017 at 7:30pm. Follow the story of Inge Altenberg as she journeys to America to marry a bachelor farmer, sight unseen. In the wake of WWI, 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.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board and a grant from Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
