Lost in the Stars at CSUS

The eight annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Project "Lost in the Stars," is a musical about race relations set in pre-apartheid South Africa in 1949 and plays at California State University, Sacramento through Jan. 21. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. There is also a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee as well as 4 p.m. matinees on Sunday and Monday. All shows are free and take place in the University Theatre in Shasta Hall.

The play is a collaborate effort between CSUS, California Musical Theatre, Celebration Arts and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Wide Celebration Committee.

Based on the novel Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton and featuring the final Broadway score composer by the late German composure Kurt Weill - the musical is about a black minister whose faith is tested when his son unintentionally kills a white man.

The musical features a multicultural cast and is directed by UC Davis professor emeritus Harry Charles Johnson.
