Register Editor

 

It’s not easy being green. Just ask Jonathon Moser who plays Shrek in the eponymous musical opening Friday at the Elkader Opera House. It takes about an hour to transform the McGregor chiropractor and Opera House stage regular into the loveable neon-colored ogre. But that’s nothing compared to the two hours it took makeup and set design wizard Cary Kann to complete the first-ever transformation.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression—and apparently Elkader’s downtown merchants don’t need one.

Register Editor

 

Harvey Sollberger has hit another high note in a storied career as a flutist, composer and conductor. The Strawberry Point resident was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Flute Association.
