Carol Ryrie Brink’s award-winning novel “Caddie Woodlawn,” is brought to exuberant life as a musical. Caddie (the high-spirited Wisconsin pioneer girl beloved by generations of readers) leads her willing siblings in a series of thrilling adventures, not always with the approval of her traditional Bostonian mother. Her father, however, encourages her antics, that she might thrive amidst the new, tougher ways of the West. In a dramatic climax, Caddie single-handedly diffuses a potentially deadly clash between the terrified settlers and the local Dakota tribe. Through it all, the sacredness of family and tradition is powerfully dramatized.
