Morningside to present the children’s musical “Honk!”

June 30, 2014, in Latest News

Morningside College will present the children’s musical “Honk!” at 7 p.m. Friday, July 18, and at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 19, in the Buhler Outdoor Performance Center, 3625 Garretson Ave., on the college’s campus.

The free performances are part of the Betty Ling Tsang Fine Arts Series at Morningside College.

A musical adaptation of “The Ugly Duckling” by Hans Christian Andersen, “Honk!” is the story of Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks incite prejudice from his family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry cat, Ugly must find his way home, with only his loving mother searching for him. Along the way, he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny, but also finds love and acceptance in all of its forms.

In the event of rain, the performances will move to Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Ave., on the Morningside campus.

The Betty Ling Tsang Fine Arts Series is named for the late Betty Ling Tsang, a 1940 Morningside College music graduate. It is designed to bring free, quality music and theatre performances to residents of the Sioux City area.

Other productions this summer include the Lamb Caravan production “Snow White and the Missing Dwarfs” on July 25 and 26; and the Stephen Sondheim musical “Putting It Together: A Musical Review” on Aug. 8 and 9.

Construction on the Morningside campus restricts parking near, and access to, the Buhler Outdoor Performance Center. Parking is available behind the Olsen Student Center on Peters Avenue and in the Lewis Hall visitor lot, the Facilities Services lot along Garretson Avenue, the east portion of the Grace United Methodist Church lot and the Eppley Auditorium lot.
