'Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’ tickets to go on sale on Jan. 29

ABERDEEN, S.D. – Tickets for the Northern State University theater production of “The Miraculous Tale of Edward Tulane” will go on sale on Monday, Jan. 29.

The show will be performed in the Johnson Fine Arts Center Black Box Theater at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16 and at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 17.

Once, in a house on Egypt Street, there lived a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely, owned him. One day, he was lost and his adventures began. “The Mysterious Journey of Edward Tulane” takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hoboes' camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. Along the way, we are shown a true miracle, that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose and to love again.

Cast members of the production include MacKinley Bruemmer of LaCrosse, Wis., as The Traveler; Michael Lytle of Rapid City as The Musician; Brady Hamer of Lyman as The Man; and Morgan Wilson of Hot Springs as The Woman.

Directing the production is NSU Director of Theater Daniel Yurgaitis. Joshua John Frachiseur is the technical director and Jordan Metz is in charge of costuming. Trevor Carrier is the production manager for the show and Joshua Hinkemeyer of Sisseton is in charge of sound design. Adam Henning of Watertown is the stage manager and Caleb Schoenfelder of Huron is the assistant stage manager.
