Horizon Middle School presents classic musical “Li’l Abner” in new performing arts center
February 11, 2019
Moorhead’s Horizon Middle School Theatre brings the rip-roaring, foot-stomping classic musical “Li’l Abner” to life at 7 p.m. February 28, March 1 and 2 and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 3 in the new Horizon Middle School Performing Arts Center, 3601 12th Ave. S.
Based on Al Capp’s beloved cartoon strip, “Li’l Abner” combines hillbilly shenanigans with sharp political and social satire. As Sadie Hawkins Day approaches, Daisy Mae Scragg has her eye fixed on Li’l Abner with hopes of catching him in the annual race. But a senator comes to town to inform the citizens that the government has plans to turn Dogpatch into a nuclear testing ground. Can Mammy Yokum’s Yokumberry tonic save the day? And will sweet Daisy Mae ever land her dreamboat?
