I've reserved seats for Carolina Homeschooler members for the Freedom Train play at several locations in February.

 

Freedom Train tells the story of Harriet Tubman, the Moses of her people, in a series of highly theatrical scenes that use dance, dialogue, and music of the period. Songs include "Follow the Drinking Gourd," "Steal Away," "Wade in the Water," "Good News, the Chariot's A-comin'," and many others still sung today. It's the story of self-sacrifice, dedication, and survival, laced with warmth and a sense of humor that celebrates the human spirit.

This play lasts approximately one hour and is most appropriate for grades 2-8. Younger and older students are also welcome to attend. However, parents of younger children are asked to remove children from the auditorium if they become disruptive during the performance.

Seating for most performances are first-come, first-serve, beginning 40 minutes prior to the start of the event.

Here are the locations to choose from:

South Carolina
Columbia (Koger Center) - February 3, 9:45 am
Greenville (McAlister Auditorium-Furman) - February 12, 11:45 am
Myrtle Beach (Myrtle Beach HS Auditorium) - February 19, 9:45 am

North Carolina
Members in NC can choose from performances in Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Hickory, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem. Just note on your registration form which is closest to you and I'll reserve space for you at that venue at the 9:45 am or 11:45 am performance (whichever has availability).

 

The registration deadline is January 3. Find out more...
