The San Jacinto College production of Violet features student performers in musical numbers ranging in style from country to gospel to blues, as the audience follows the journey of a disfigured woman who embarks on a cross-country bus trip to be healed by a minister in the 1960’s.

Violet runs March 10, 11, 17, 18 at 7:30 pm, and March 12, 19 at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors, $6 for students, and $5 for veterans and active military.
