William Carey University will perform “Sacramento Fifty Miles” on December 8 and 9 at 7 p.m. and at 2 p.m. Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. in the Joe and Virginia Tatum Theatre on the Hattiesburg campus.
Sacramento Fifty Miles is a joyful musical for children by Eleanor and Ray Harder and is loosely based on the old tale of The Brementown Musicians. Set in the days of the California Gold Rush, Molly the burro and Darby the dog escape their mean master and set off for a better life in Sacramento. Along the way they meet Contessa, a Spanish cat, and Beauregard, a Southern rooster. The foursome join forces to find Sacramento, with the major obstacle in their journey being two selfish gold prospectors.
Tickets for these performances are $5 each. Seating is limited, so please make plans early to attend. To make reservations, call 601-318-6222.
