STERLING –Sterling College Theatre Department present two performances of "Ming Lee and the Magic Tree" on Wednesday at the college’s Culbertson Auditorium.

"Ming Lee and the Magic Tree" follows the story of a young prince who has been transformed into a tiger by the Jade god of China and seeks to be changed back to his princely form so he can marry his true love — the Princess of the Stars. Before he can be restored he needs to find "what makes a happy man." Along the way he finds Ming Lee and with the help of his magic tail he grants Ming Lee many wishes that Ming believes will make him happy but to no avail until Ming realizes what he really needs to be happy may have been with him all along.
