Harris "The Pull of the Land"
"The Pull of the Land" has made Harris a nationally recognized place. The original play was enjoyed by more than 28,000 people at 68 performances and was nationally recognized by the National Post in 2003. Harris locals, Beth Roberston and Elaine Kowpak wrote, produced and directed this inspiring prairie story. The cast includes individuals from the Harris and Rosetown regions. With such popular success of the original, "The Pull of the Land - The Sequel," has now taken the stage. The play has also become the highlight of the annual four-day Harris Summer Festival and the many street murals depicting "The Pull of the Land" painted by Liza Gareau Tosh.
