HERNANDO, Miss. – The next blockbuster movie star, Sheldon the Turtle?

Sheldon greeted the young thespians from Kudzu Playhouse when he visited the Hernando Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, June 18, 2013. He picked up some tips from the kids as they took a break from preparing for their Friday night performance of Disney’s “Mulan”.

“Sheldon visiting the kids was a nice treat as they get ready for their performance Friday,” Kudzu Playhouse Camp Director Allison Saxton said.

The Hernando Performing Arts Center hosts Kudzu Playhouse’s performance of Disney’s “Mulan” this Friday, June 21. Tickets to the show are $5 at the door.
