Welcome to Northwest Suburban Integration School District
Journey Around the World with Anoka Middle School for the Arts!

Anoka Middle School for the Arts Theater presents the musical comedy, Pippi Longstocking, with a journey to Sweden for the children’s classic. Along with this production, AMSA Theater will be presenting a free Swedish cultural event from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 12 showcasing activities and food of traditional Swedish culture.

On the outskirts of town stands a ramshackle house. It may not seem like much ’til you peek through the railings…then, there’s a horse on the porch, a monkey in the kitchen and a freckle faced, red-pigtailed, whirlwind of a girl in mismatched stockings presiding over all! This is the domain of — ready? — Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking.

Pippi is outrageously unsupervised and proud of it. She has what she needs to get by, and if she doesn’t she’ll make something up that will do the trick. Her father is a pirate captain off sailing the seas. Her mother is an angel watching over her from heaven. And neither Mrs. Prysselius, head of the Child Welfare Board, nor Thunder and Bloom, a couple of ne’erdo- wells who try to abscond with the gold in her pirate treasure chest can get the best of her.

AMSA’s resident director Jefferson Fietek directs the production.  The costume design is by Immanuel Elliot and Stirling Callander is the lighting designer.  The set designer is Matt Kari and graphic designer is Tara Nitz.  Kate Kulas serves as the production’s vocal director. Originally written by Astrid Lindgren and adapted for the stage by Thomas W. Olson with music by Roberta Carlson.

There will be a free Swedish cultural event from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 12 showcasing activities and food of traditional Swedish culture.

Not Just a College Visit – but an Opportunity!
College visits.
