Tackett is house manager for the play.

According to, "Two men, Vladimir (Didi) and Estragon (Gogo), meet near a tree. They while away the hours, talking philosophy, bodily functions, and sharing a few measly turnips, all while waiting for a man named Godot -- who never seems to come. They are joined by the oafish, bombastic Pozzo, his leashed human slave, Lucky, and eventually by a young boy, who informs them that that although Godot will not come today, he surely will tomorrow."

All performances will be held at the Fine Arts Auditorium on the Senatobia campus. For more information, contact Algee at 662-562-3332 or email
