The Magik Theatre of San Antonio, Texas, brings to the stage the story of Chief Powhatan’s brave young daughter, Pocahontas, and her efforts to help Captain John Smith and a group of settlers. In the story, the group has just arrived in Jamestown, where the locals are hostile, food and supplies are running out, and winter is quickly approaching. Pocahontas helps Smith and the colonists survive until her father forbids her to continue, forcing her to choose between his wishes and what she believes is right. The musical is perfect entertainment for the entire family.
In the event that tickets remain for these performances, Leach Theatre will also offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club.” The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold one hour before each event for $10 each.
Leach Theatre is a division of Missouri S&T’s student affairs department. For more information about the series, call the Leach Theatre Box Office at 573-341-4219.
