Morningside College presents the children’s musical “The Elves and the Shoemaker” at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on July 30 and 10 a.m. on July 31 in the Buhler Outdoor Performance Center, 3625 Garretson Avenue, on the college’s campus.
The free performances are part of Morningside’s Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series. Based on the classic Grimm Brothers tale about the kindness of the shoemaker and the magic of three elves who help him, “The Elves and the Shoemaker” includes chase scenes, crazy characters, songs and music for audience members of all ages.
In the event of rain, the performance will move to Klinger-Neal Theatre, 3700 Peters Avenue, on the Morningside campus.
Randy Peters, artistic director for the Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series, said the series is designed to bring free, quality music and theatre performances to Sioux City area residents of all ages.
“Experiencing theater is a wonderful learning tool for children,” Peters said. “One of the goals of the Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series is to start children on a lifelong love of the arts.”
The final performance for the 2010 Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series is The Noteables, the U.S. Air Force Heartland of America Band’s jazz ensemble, on August 13.
