What would you do if a spaceship from another galaxy crashed in your rural Minnesota town? YOU’D WRITE AND PERFORM A MUSICAL PAGEANT ABOUT IT!
In COLD PLANET WARM HEART, the women of the Upper Midwest Center for Universal Peace are staging the story of the greatest event in their history: the arrival of a being from another galaxy and the barista who befriended them.
