VISTA Productions Presents Live and Streamed performances of Sweet Land the Musical

This poignant story set in 1920 on Park Rapids farmland will be performed outdoors on the
Visitation Convent grounds. The musical version was beautifully created by local creative team
of Perrin Post (book), Laurie Flannigan Hegge (book and lyrics) and Dina Maccabee (music) and Inspired by the film Sweet Land by Ali Selim (STA ’79) and the short story A GRAVESTOME MADE OF WHEAT by Will Weaver. There will be limited seating for the three outdoor performances and also opportunities to purchase access to the streamed production.

The story

Sweet Land is a poignant, lyrical celebration of land, love, and the American immigrant
experience. In 1920 Inge Altenberg journeys to America to marry a bachelor farmer, sight
unseen. But 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
reminds us of who we are — and where we came from.
