Petal recognizes top theater organization

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - Petal officials are honoring a hometown theater group for producing the best drama in Mississippi. Tuesday night, the Board of Aldermen recognized the Just Over the Rainbow Theater for a first-ever state championship.

Its production of the play Driving Miss Daisy won the Best Show Award at the Mississippi Theater Festival in Meridian last weekend. In March, the group takes its production on the road again to a regional competition in Atlanta.

The organization is accepting donations for that trip.
