“White Buffalo”: Purple Rose Theatre Company.
Every Wed.-Sat. (except Easter), Mar. 29-June 2. Guy Sanville directs the world premiere of Don Zolidis’s award-winning drama about a white buffalo born on a small farm in southern Wisconsin. The owner thinks nothing of it until she learns that the birth is the fulfillment of an ancient Sioux prophecy of peace on earth, and her little farm is quickly overwhelmed with religious pilgrims, bringing her into contact with a culture and faith wholly unfamiliar to her. Cast: David Daoust, Matthew David, Rainbow Dickerson, Stacie Hadgikosti, Alex Leydenfrost, Nate Mitchell, Michelle Mountain, Michael Brian Ogden, Meghan Thompson.
