0502"When Momma Prayed," is performing to the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins.

Enhanced with six pieces of original music created by Matt "Dr. Fink" Fink, former co-writer and sideman for years with Prince, and playwright-director Darryl Harrell, the play runs through Aug. 30. Starring Greta Oglesby and a cast of six actors, nine singers, a dancer, and two musicians, the play is a story about a rural, very poor, Black family living in the Deep South in the 1960s. When the father unexpectedly passes away, the family's food and money quickly vanish. Their situation becomes dire, Momma prays, and her prayer is answered in a miraculous way.

2939There will be 15 performances at the Hopkins Center. Four Saturday matinee performances will be held at noon on Aug. 9, Aug. 16 and Aug. 23, with the closing performance the noon matinee Aug. 30.

Tickets are $16, $20, and $24, and are available by ordering through the Hopkins Center box office. Group discounts are available. Additional information about the production is available at
