'My Antonia'

The Illusion Theater of Minneapolis will present “My Antonia” at Central Lakes College in Brainerd on Friday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Chalberg Theatre. The production is presented by the Cultural Arts Series at CLC. Since 1974, Illusion Theater has been making light of the illusions, myths, and realities of our times and uses the power of theater to catalyze personal and social change. Their Ivey-Award-winning production of “My Antonia” brings Willa Cather’s novel to life in a new adaption by Allison Moore that is capturing hearts and minds throughout the Midwest. “My Antonia” was written about the European immigrants of the 1880s who came here to make their American dreams come true despite the bitter winters and hard-scrabble conditions on the prairie. This production is wrapped up in the environment of the changing prairie as created by actors, set, and sound. Ticket prices are $10, $20, or $25 depending upon location of seating. Tickets are for assigned seats. CLC Theatre may be reached at (218) 855-8199 or clctheatre@clcmn.edu  For full ticket details and seating charts, visit www.clctickets.com
