NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and its Children's Performing Arts Series will present "Laura Ingalls Wilder" in two performances on Thursday, May 8, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.

Presented by ArtsPower, this beloved story of Laura and her family as they travel across America in search of a place to call home targets children in second through sixth grades, according to Diane J. Peterson, SFA Fine Arts Box Office manager and director of the Children's Performing Arts Series.

"Facing obstacles such as scarlet fever and eviction from their land, their pioneering spirit and family bonds are tested but never broken," Peterson said. "This uplifting story of one of America's most beloved authors comes to life in ArtsPower's popular musical."

Tickets are $6 for individuals and $5 per person for groups of 20 or more. For tickets or more information, call the Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit

Turner Auditorium is located in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive.
