Based on the beloved series by Janette Oke, this musical follows Elizabeth Thatcher as she travels from her wealthy, childhood home across the rugged Canadian west to teach in a small, one-room schoolhouse. Her heart for teaching is challenged by her pupils, her rugged surroundings, and by a handsome Canadian Mountie.

But her heart will only expand to find that her calling is as vast as the beautiful Canadian frontier. Created for stage with music and lyrics by Christy Stutzman, this new musical can only be seen at The Round Barn Theatre and is certain to become a favorite for years to come.
