BELTON, Texas — In celebration of Black History Month, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) is excited to host a special production this week. The gospel stage play by KZAmore Enterprises, a faith-based company, titled "Mama's Daughters" is coming to the Baugh Performance Hall in the Sue & Frank Mayborn Performing Arts Center on Friday, Feb. 17 and Saturday, Feb. 18 at 7:30 p.m.
The gospel stage play is written by Dr. Kerry-Ann Zamore-Byrd, a social work professor at UMHB. "Mama’s Daughters is an original piece that explains the complexity of family relationships,” explained Zamore-Byrd. “It stars many special guests the audience is sure to love.”
The story explores the relationship between a mother and her daughters as she struggles to cope with her failing health. Her daughters discover hidden family secrets that give them a deeper understanding and love for family.
Gospel recording artist Tasha Page-Lockhart, as seen in Tyler Perry’s “Madea on the Run” and Winner of Sunday’s Best, plays the role of Sophie, one of the daughters. The production also features gospel sensation Lisa Page Brooks, Tasha Page-Lockhart’s biological mother, and local radio personalities Stewy Hype, Monique Barsh, and Lady T.
General admission tickets are $30 each, and admission is $20 for UMHB students, employees, and alumni with a valid CruCard or Alumni card. Partial proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Association of Black Students and the Social Work Club. Tickets are available at UMHB’s Performing Arts Center box office and online at Mama's Daughters Tickets (ticketreturn.com).
