An Evening of Culture Faith County II: The Saga Continues
The long-awaited sequel to the wonderfully popular Faith County. We're in Mineola County again, where the Community Theatre is producing Romeo and Juliet. Even though the cast members don't have their lines memorized, the set isn't finished, and a dog keeps barking off stage, they're gonna give it a go! There's just an awe-inspirin' performance given by Mildred Carson (who doesn't look fifty) as Juliet. And there's great chemistry between her and Bubba Bedford, who is cast as Romeo. And lest we forget Naomi Farkle Carson who provided the additional dialogue. Free to Daytona State College students as well as Volusia and Flagler county elementary, middle and high school students, all others $8 per person or $15 for two; online ticketing available at
DSC's News-Journal Center, Gillespy Theater

Group rates are available when purchasing 10 or more tickets for any performance (some restrictions apply). For additional information, contact the DSC News-Journal Center Box Office, (386) 226-1927.

The performing arts programs at Daytona State prepare students for futures in music, drama and dance, while also providing entertainment opportunities for the community through a variety of events produced each semester. Proceeds from tickets are used to support the Performing Arts Scholarship program at Daytona State.
