My Antonia comes to life on Red Cloud Opera House stage

HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) Nearly five years after hosting the Nebraska premier of the play, the stage production of Willa Cather's My Antonia is returning to Red Cloud.

The Illusion Theater group will present the play Tuesday, February 19 at the Red Cloud Opera House. There will be a student matinee at 2:00 p.m., followed by the public presentation that evening at 7:30 p.m.

Willa Cather Foundation executive director Ashley Olson thinks people will enjoy what they see.

"This is one of the best adaptations of My Antonia that I've seen," said Olson. "If you've read the book, you of course know the plot line and know that it's just a really moving and endearing story."

Tickets can be purchased by calling (402) 746-2641, or by
