Turner Center for the Arts presents a free live performance of “Harriet Tubman & The Underground Railroad.” The touring cast of the renowned Virginia Repertory Theatre will perform this stirring drama at the Valdosta Performing Arts Center, located at 3101 Barack Obama Blvd., in Valdosta.
“Harriet Tubman & the Underground Railroad” is made possible through a partnership with the City of Valdosta, Valdosta City Schools System, and Center for the Arts Guild. Two performances for local eighth-graders will take place during the day, and students will receive an interactive study guide with fun and engaging activities connected to the school curriculum.
This is a classic tribute to a great American who freed herself and hundreds of others from the bonds of slavery. Harriet Tubman’s courage helped to change the world, and young and mature audience alike will share her adventurous life and will be deeply moved by the musical history lesson.
Admission for the evening performance is free on a first-come first-serve basis. For more information about this program or other events and activities, call 229.247.2787. Patrons who need special assistance may contact the Center to make arrangements.
