Patience, perseverance and a healthy shot of determination are the keys to success—that’s the message brought to life in the annual Texas A&M University-Kingsville children’s play, The Great Cross Country Race.
The general public is invited to the only public performance of the play at 7 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 7 in Jones Auditorium, located on Armstrong Street, near the Santa Gertrudis Boulevard intersection. The play will be performed at 9 a.m. Feb. 8-10 for Kingsville area school children and at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 11-12 for area school children outside of Kingsville. Admission is $1 per person for all performances.
The Great Cross Country Race is a twist on the classic Aesop fable, “The Tortoise and the Hare.” The play chronicles the adventures of Sloe the tortoise and Fleet the rabbit as they compete in a race through the countryside.
