Presented by St. Croix Festival Theatre at St. Croix Festival Theatre

Sarah, Plain and Tall
by Patricia MacLachlan | adapted by Jeffery Hatcher
March 18-March 27 | Auditions for any local youth happening in January!

Set in the early 1900’s, this play brings to life the charming, heartwarming story of a Kansas farmer, Jacob Witting, a widower with two children—Anna and Caleb, who places an ad in the newspapers seeking a wife. He receives a letter from a Sarah Wheaton of Maine who says she will visit the family for a month to see how things work out: “I will come by train. I will wear a yellow bonnet. I am plain and tall.” Narrated by Anna reminiscing on the eve of her wedding, the story unfolds in a fascinating flashback on that often exciting, sometimes tumultuous month, when Sarah and the Wittings came to know one another and learned a few things about themselves as well.

Accessibility Info

 Our charming old building allows us to rise to the occasion by climbing stairs to get to the theatre! The three half flights of stairs can be a challenge for injured or ailing knees & hips, so we welcome our patrons to use the northeast entrance to the theatre up an easy ramp and directly into the theatre. Access to our outdoor patio and mezzanine is also possible via this ramp.
