“Stinney” Opera Bus Trip
Montcalm Community College is hosting a Feb. 23 bus trip to the Peter Martin Wege Theatre in Grand Rapids for a dress rehearsal of the opera “Stinney: An American Execution” by Frances Pollock.
In 1944, George Stinney Jr. was executed at the age of 14. Wrongfully accused of the rape and murder of two white girls, Stinney became the youngest person legally executed in America. “Stinney: An American Execution” spotlights the agony of this injustice as it reminds us of our aspirations for an enlightened society.
The bus will leave MCC’s Sidney campus at 5:30 p.m. and will depart from Grand Rapids at 9:30 p.m. to bring attendees back to campus. Only 40 tickets are available, and the cost is $10 per ticket. Advance registration is required. Visit montcalm.edu/events for more information and a link to register.
Attendees must provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. Masks are required and must be worn throughout the entire performance.
This event is funded by the MCC Foundation Stanley and Blanche Ash Community College Enhancement Fund.
