The Morris Area High School presents "They eat sunshine, not zebras" by Dara Murphy on Thursday, March 28 at 7 p.m. There will also be presentations on Saturday, March 30 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. All performances are in the Morris Area Elementary concert hall. There is no cost for the show.

The story of the play from TheatreFolk is "The field believes in uniformity. Lovely rows of blades all the same height. Lovely rows of blades exhibiting standard behavior of green grassness. Nothing stands in the way of their orderly life. Until they wake up one morning to see a yellow dandelion in their midst. Sunny (that's the dandelion) is bright and warm and just wants to be friends. The field wants nothing to do with her nonstandard, non-green ways. A dandelion will turn their orderly way of life upside-down. A dandelion must be destroyed. Isn't that what you do when something is different?"

Cast members are: The Grasses - Kylen Running Hawk, Damon Lanoue, Jack Mahoney, Nikolai Stout, Lilly Zeltwanger, Maggie Beaver, Owen Beyer, Paxton VanEps and Kaia Anderson as Sunny, a Dandelion.
