STARKVILLE, Miss.—A unique show that brings secrets to light and has led audiences across the country to both laughter and tears will be at Mississippi State next week.
PostSecret: The Show is an immersive, poignant journey through the humor and humanity of the personal stories people keep to themselves, and on rare occasions, share with others. The program takes place Monday [March 5] at 7 p.m. in Bettersworth Auditorium of historic Lee Hall. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event is free to all, with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.
MSU’s Center for Student Activities is sponsoring the special event in conjunction with the Office of Health Promotion and Wellness, Student Counseling Services and the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center.
