“Johnny Appleseed” is the first MCT touring show to have a national sponsor, according to Foundations/Corporations Director Naomi Lichtenberg, and it’s a juicy one. A marketing agency promoting the Cosmic Crisp® apple, a new variety engineered at Washington State University, will sponsor the show. “They felt that the people that we reach — families, students, kids, and so on — would be a great fit,” Lichtenberg said. “Johnny Appleseed is of course a perfect fit, too.”
