Friday, October 26, 2018
In his 45-minute performance, Tom Milligan will appear "in character" as he shares about conservation with the audience and answer questions as "Ding" Darling. Tom has spent 45 years as an actor, director, scenic designer, and theater artist in the Midwest.
His performance shares the story of the Sioux Cityan who became one of the nation's most respected political cartoonists and most deeply committed conservationist. Jay N. "Ding" Darling visits with the audience, as an old friend, in his 11th office at the Des Moines Register. Beginning with his early years in Sioux City he recalls his remarkable life. His story includes two Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoons for the Register and a remarkable career as a nationally known conservationist.
