Amana – Hurry U.P. Hare always wins the annual 4th of July footrace through the forest.
In fact, none of the other forest creatures will even try to race against him. But things are
different this year as an expected and rather unique challenger lumbers up to the starting
line. Now it’s Hurry U.P. Hare against Ponderous Plod in The Old Creamery Theatre for
Young Audiences production of The Hare and the Tortoise.

Everybody comes out a winner with this musical retelling of a classic, opening Saturday,
April 7 at 1 p.m. on The Old Creamery’s Main Stage. The Hare and the Tortoise was
written by Gene Mackey with original music by Cheryl Benge.

The cast of The Hare and the Tortoise consists of Eddie Skaggs of Cedar Rapids,
Nicholas Hodge of South Amana, Amber Snyder of Amana, Jackie McCall of Marengo
and Ian Zahren, of South Amana. Directed by Sean McCall, The Hare and the Tortoise
runs through April 21 with shows at 1 p.m. on Saturday April 7 and 14 and at 10 a.m. and
1 p.m. on April 21.

Tickets are only $8 per person and reservations are highly recommended. The Hare and
