Saturday, April 1, 2023 | 3:00 pm Community Performance
We are happy to announce our new show date: Saturday, April 1st at 3:00 pm. We are looking forward to a bright, sunny day!
The Golden Husk is thrilled to welcome our wonderful friends-Blixt for the musical theatre production of Puddin' and the Grumble!
Told through the eyes of a plucky fifth grader, Puddin' and the Grumble is an uplifting family musical that takes an unconventional approach to addressing childhood hunger, lasting friendships, and the power of unconditional love.
Written by Nebraska artists Becky Boesen and David von Kampen, PUDDIN' AND THE GRUMBLE was commissioned and created in partnership with the Lied Center for Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The shared mission was to utilize theatre to shine a light on child hunger and ways to address this issue as community.
In honor of this mission we are partnering with the Loup Valley Childhood Initiative and Ord Area Food Pantry to host this performance. Please consider bringing food items and supplies to benefit the Ord Area Food Pantry. A collection box will be located in the lobby of the theatre on show day.
Due to the postponement of the show, we are now offering tickets at a reduced rate. $10/adult and FREE/youth (18 yrs & under).
Plan on joining us for this heartwarming family musical!
