The Morticians are back!
In the fall of 1964 five students from Gunsolley Hall started a rock band eventually named The Fabulous Morticians. It was quite an undertaking since Graceland did not allow dancing on campus at that time. The Morticians were invited to perform for the first official dance held on Graceland's campus in the spring of 1968.
Fifty years later, The Fabulous Morticians will be back on a Graceland stage to perform for you during Homecoming 2014! You will not want to miss this special concert scheduled for Saturday night, October 18!
The group has quite a history which includes being inducted into the Iowa Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. Read all about the group and its members on their website, www.thefabulousmorticians.com.
Homecoming Production is Announced
The Graceland University Theatre department has announced that the 2014 Homecoming production will be a musical, "Into The Woods." The musical is based on a book by James Lapine with music and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim which made its Broadway debut in 1987.
"Into the Woods" intertwines the plots of several fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm. The main characters are taken from "Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," and "Cinderella.” The musical is tied together by an original story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.
Tickets will be available in September. Updates will be posted on this website as more information becomes available.
Are you planning ahead? The dates for Homecoming 2015 will be October 16-18.
