The Children’s Performing Arts Series at Stephen F. Austin State University observes Black History Month with two performances of “Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad,” presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre, on Thursday, Feb. 1.
This stirring drama with music is a classic tribute to the great American who freed herself and hundreds of her people from the bonds of slavery. Her courage helped to change the world. Share her adventurous life with your students in this factual and deeply moving musical history lesson. The play targets children in second through eighth grade.
Performances are at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus. Tickets are $7.50 for individuals and $6 per person for groups of 20 or more. Tickets go on sale Aug. 14.
