"Driving Miss Daisy" rose to popularity back in 1989 when it won four Oscars including best picture.
The story takes place in the deep south in the late 40s, just before the civil rights movement. Daisy is a sharp-tongued Jewish widow, who is forced to rely on a chauffeur, named "Hoke". Over the next 25 years, a friendship ensues, but not without a little drama.
Now the popular story is being performed live, right here, in Sioux Falls starting February 17.
The SECT cast is being touted as some of the most seasoned, talented performers to take the stage in Sioux Falls.
Some of the principle players from the Sioux Empire Community Theater, the group performing the play, joined us Thursday morning on KDLT News Today, to tell us more about their roles and the play.
The play will be performed for three weeks starting February 17-March 4.
The performances will be on Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased SECT Box Office located inside the Orpheum Theater in Sioux Falls.

Sioux Falls, SD
