The Sacred Harp
Phone: 281-FREE-FUN or 281-373-3386
The Sacred Harp is the story of a small Southern town in the early 20thcentury. At the center of the story is a young couple, deep in love, but with one controversial problem: he is black and she is white. When the townspeople discover the couple’s relationship, their reaction sparks revolutionary societal change.
The Sacred Harp is told through contemporary ballet, modern and American folk, historical shape-note singing and narrative film while portraying the journey of Southern society from oppression and prejudice to tolerance and acceptance.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
