Marion High School Black History Club has a musical treat for audiences this year at their annual play: “The Queen - A Tribute to Aretha Franklin”.

The play is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Walton Center at Marion High School.

The MHS Black History Club has put on a play every year since 1980. The play is the largest fundraiser of the year for the club, and proceeds help fund their annual spring college tour to historically black colleges and universities.

Tickets are $7 and can be purchased from any Black History Club member or from Bobbie Owensby, MHS teacher and sponsor of the club, as well as director of the play. They will also be available at the door the night of the play.

Anyone who wants to donate to the spring college trip or help in any other way can contact Mrs. Owensby as well, by calling her at the high school, 664-9051, ext. 3234.
