The Morningside College Theatre Department will present the children’s play “The Princess and the Pea” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov.12, in the Klinger-Neal Theatre, 3700 Peters Ave., on the Morningside College campus.
In “The Princess and the Pea,” the queen will only allow her son, Prince John, to marry a young lady if she is a princess through and through. When the storm-tossed girl of his dreams shows up at the castle door, no one believes she is of royal blood. In order for Hannah to prove her worthiness, she must pass a nobility test.
Student cast members are Engels Perez Boscan of Caracas, Venezuela, as the Prince; Khiana Hume of Omaha, Neb., as the Princess; Joey Volquartsen of Stanton, Iowa, as the Queen; Brock Bourek of Columbus, Neb., as the Prime Minister; Katelyn Stewart of Crofton, Neb., as the Upstairs Maid; and Madison Schueth of Fremont, Neb., as the Downstairs Maid.
Other students assisting with the production are Annalee Dorsey of Kansas City, Kan., as stage manager and set designer; Erica Young of Fayette, Iowa, as costume designer; Amy Carothers of Fort Myers, Fla., as a music director; and crew members Zachary Hutchison of Mallard, Iowa; Jonathan Winslow Duehr of Fountain, Colo.; Alona Zermeno of Orchard, Neb.; Destiny Clark of Sumner, Iowa; and Jordan Beach of Fargo, N.D.
The play is directed by Taylor Clemens, assistant professor of theatre at Morningside College, and Steve Lundberg is assisting as a music director.
“It is a fun, family-friendly show that will entertain the whole family,” Clemens said.
