Frostburg State University will present “Corduroy” as the final show of this season’s Cultural Events Series on Saturday, May 14, at 1 and 3 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Drama Theatre on campus. The event is part of the Family Fun Series and is sponsored by Smiley’s Fun Zone and Pizzeria.
“Corduroy” is a lovely jazz-inspired musical treat, perfect for anyone who has ever wanted a friend. Based on the classic children’s story, “Corduroy” tells the story of a lonely teddy bear and the girl who adopts him. When 8-year old Lisa Carolina Evelina Brown moves to the big city, everything is different and no one wants to be her friend. Meanwhile, in Hampton’s Department Store, a teddy bear in green overalls named Corduroy is just waiting for a friend. When he meets Lisa, they both know they are perfect for each other. But Lisa’s mom will not spend her hard-earned money on a bear that is missing a button. While Corduroy searches the store for his lost button, Lisa searches for a way to bring her new friend home.
