The concerts will be held at Southern Station on the Hattiesburg campus of the University of Southern Mississippi, just behind MM Roberts Field and the Thad Cochran Center. Screenings on Thursday and Saturday will take place at 7:30 p.m.

“With our show outside in the park, it’s not like a normal theater. We will have seats available for people to sit in, but we are really looking for people to bring your blankets, bring your lawn chairs, treat this as a tailing event, ”said Harlan Mapp, the producer of Southern Opera. Musical Theater Company. “Come to an event in the park and just enjoy the atmosphere.”

“We hope to make it a fun time,” said USM Opera Director Jonathan Yarrington. “Something people who may never come to an opera can come and enjoy. “
